Description Polling Hours: 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
South Carolina lies in the Eastern Time Zone.

The Ballot [Link] includes Hugh Cort, John Cox, Cap Fendig, Giuliani, Huckabee, Duncan Hunter, McCain, Paul, Romney, Tancredo and Thompson.

According to The Green Papers, [Link] South Carolina has been sanctioned by the RNC regarding the selection of delegates.

"On November 2007, the RNC made a determination that South Carolina's Saturday 19 January 2008 primary violates Republican Party Rule Number 16. The rule states that the process of selecting National Convention Delegates must not begin before Tuesday 5 February 2008. South Carolina is sanctioned 50% of their delegation hence, the number of delegates is decreased from 47 to 24."
