GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Voters across the area headed to the polls Tuesday to cast ballots in many local races.

Tuesday was the first November election under South Carolina's new voter ID law, which requires voters bring a valid driver's license, state issued ID, passport or military ID in order to vote.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. in South Carolina and opened at 6:30 a.m. in North Carolina. All polls are now closed.

Among many municipal races up for grabs Tuesday, there were two alcohol-related referendums in the Upstate. The alcohol-related referendums in Travelers Rest and Fountain Inn passed on Tuesday night.

There were many other races held Tuesday in the Upstate and western North Carolina. There are several dozen council, commission and alderman seats up for grabs, and there are two dozen mayoral races going on in the mountains, including in Asheville.

Esther Manheimer was elected as the mayor of Asheville with nearly 69 percent of the vote and Barbara Volk was elected mayor of Hendersonville with nearly 60 percent of the vote.

All results are unofficial until votes are certified by their respective election commission.
