Voters in South Carolina wishing to vote in the Republican Presidential Preference Primary will go to the polls Saturday to choose who they would like to see as the party’s nominee for president this November.

Republican presidential candidates still in the race whose names will appear on the ballot Saturday are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and billionaire entrepreneur Donald Trump.

According to Kershaw County Voter Registration Director John Caughman, voters will vote at their normal polling places with two exceptions. Originally, many polling places were going to be combined as a cost-savings measure, but Caughman said the state freed up additional funds to open all polling places for Saturday’s Republican presidential primary and Feb. 27’s Democratic presidential primary.
