Democratic congressional candidate Elizabeth Colbert-Busch‘s name will appear twice on the ballot for today’s election in South Carolina’s first district. She has been nominated by both the Democratic Party and the Working Families Party.
“She’s been nominated by both parties,” explains Chris Whitmire, a public information director at the South Carolina State Election Commission.”There’s no prohibition in South Carolina against that.”
Regardless of which Colbert-Busch button a voter clicks, all votes cast with her name on them will technically be for her. However, they will be counted separately when they are tallied tonight.
