Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register to vote?

It’s easy! Register online (recommended) by May 12. You can also register in person or by mail if you prefer.

Do I need to do anything if I have already registered?

Yes, check your registration status to make sure it is up to date. If your address has changed since you last registered, you will need to update that information.

What is a primary election?

Primaries are elections that political parties use to select their candidates for a general election. A primary is necessary when multiple candidates from the same political party file for the same office.

Where do I find information about what I will be voting for?

The candidates and offices on a particular ballot will differ depending on the county and districts in which you reside. 45 days before the election, your sample ballot will become available to view. This will tell you what you can vote for.

Can I request an absentee ballot?

Maybe. If you meet the requirements, you can vote with an absentee ballot. Get more info here.

Do I have to be a registered member of a party to participate in a Primary?

No. South Carolina does not have registration by party.

Does my vote really count?

Yes! In the primary elections, your voice is highly influential. Because very few people turn out to vote in the primaries, decisions can be made by a handful of votes. This is where decisions are made that impact our community (taxes, roads, public safety, parks, etc.)
