Live Results: South Carolina State Senate Special Election

South Carolina State Senate District 31

Republicans hold a 29-16 edge over Democrats in the 46-member South Carolina State Senate. Terms are for four years; the next regular elections are in 2024. These will be contested using redistricted boundaries.

District 31 is located in and around Florence, close to the coast in the northeastern part of the state. Republican Hugh Leatherman, who had been in the State Senate since 1981, died last November 12. Leatherman was unopposed in the three elections (2012, 2016, 2020) since the last redistricting.

There are two candidates on the ballot. Republican Mike Reichenbach narrowly won his party's January 25 primary. The Democratic nominee is Suzanne La Rochelle; she faced no primary opposition.
