It's time for us to start thinking about who we plan to vote for when we head to the polls to make our voices heard.
Below you will find a list of the candidates running for seats for the United State Senate and United States Congress for which Richland County voters will be casting their votes.
Who's on the Ballot?
Registered voters can find their precinct, polling place, and voting districts here. Knowing which voting districts we fall in allows voters to find out which candidates will be listed on their ballot before they get to the polls. This gives voters time to do their research so that an informed choice can be made.
