COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina voters are finally getting their chance to weigh in as polls open for the state's primary elections.

On the top of Tuesday's ballot is the governor's race. Republican Gov. Henry McMaster faces four challengers, while three Democratic candidates are battling it out for their party's nomination.

Republican U.S. Reps. Mark Sanford and Tom Rice are facing Republican challengers, as are Attorney General Alan Wilson and Secretary of State Mark Hammond. A number of state lawmakers are also in primary elections.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. In races where candidates don't secure 50 percent of votes case, runoff elections of the top two vote-getters will be held June 26.
