Democracy’s biggest enemy can sometimes be bad weather.
Fortunately for voters in South Carolina, conditions are expected to be clear and sunny throughout this Election Day.
The National Weather Service in Columbia predicts no storms and light winds in the state on Tuesday. The biggest deterrent might be a chill in the air early on.
Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 30s around 7 a.m. when the polls open, but should reach the high 60s or low 70s later in the day.
