COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The discussion of a possible election "do-over" in Richland County is back.

Hearings are set for election protests next week, aimed at overturning results the county. 

Two of those protests are from County Council candidates who did not win. The other is centered on the penny sales tax which passed by more than 9,300 votes.

Protesters say it's not a matter of what's right for the county, but the legality of the entire election.

Some people questioned the outcome of the election in Richland County after several problems were reported, including hundreds of voters who had to wait in line for several hours to vote.
