Polls Open In South Carolina [VIDEO]

South Carolina Democrats go to the polls Saturday to award convention delegates in the fourth Democratic primary of the 2016 presidential campaign.

South Carolina polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST. Depending on exit polls and same precincts, television networks and the Associated Press could project South Carolina results as soon as the polls close. South Carolina will send 59 delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who won the Iowa and Nevada caucuses, leads Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in opinion polls. The Real Clear Politics average gave Clinton a 58 percent to 32 percent lead over Sanders, winner of the New Hampshire primary.

The South Carolina primary is the last test before Super Tuesday, March 1, in which more than a dozen states and territories will select delegates.
