A special election is being held Tuesday to fill a South Carolina House of Representatives seat in Greenville County.
The Republican primary for House District 21 is being held to fill the seat which became vacant following the death of State Representative Bill Wylie of Simpsonville on September 11.
There are five Republican candidates running for the seat: Samuel Harms, Phyllis Henderson, Keith Smith, John Symons and Stephen Dowd. Greenville County polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The runoff election, if needed, will be October 26.
The lone Democrat in the race is Susan Scarborough Smith, who goes on to the November 2 ballot.
