Video: Following Your GOP Primary Ballot
Ever wondered what happens to your vote once you've confirmed your electronic ballot?
Patch was granted access to the Greenville County Department of Registration and Elections on Saturday night after the Republican primary to show what happens after you, the voter, make your decision.
In this Patch video, Greenville County Elections Director Conway Belangia walks you through what happens to your "personal electronic ballot" (PEB), and just what goes into tabulating the totals.
South Carolina uses an electronic voting system, unlike Iowa, where its caucuses were decided by hand-written votes.
That system resulted earlier this month in mass confusion, as Mitt Romney was initially declared the winner, but was later found to have finished second to Rick Santorum just this past week.
