GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Election Day saw huge voter turnout across the Carolinas, including many voters who are running for office.

Candidates for both state and federal offices expressed their gratitude for voters and their pride in democracy at work.

We caught up with U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy as he stopped to cast his ballot in Spartanburg County. The incumbent congressman and former solicitor weighed in on the Kohlhepp investigation in Spartanburg County and spoke about his humorous campaign ads.

We also spoke to incumbent U.S. Rep Jeff Duncan, who said he enjoyed seeing democracy at work and was humbled to see his name on the ballot.

Off to the local races, we caught up with both candidates vying to be Spartanburg County's top cop, incumbent Sheriff Chuck Wright and Russell Lynch.

We also caught up with both candidates in Laurens County, Republican hopeful Don Reynolds and write-in candidate Stephane Williams.
