COLUMBIA, SC (April 30, 2018) - State and local voter registration and elections officials are using the month of May to encourage voters to prepare for the Statewide Primaries on June 12 and the Primary Runoffs on June 26.
"During the month of May, election officials across the State of South Carolina are focused on encouraging voters to register to vote or update their addresses, educating voters on what they need to bring with them to the polls, and helping voters learn more about what offices and candidates will be on their ballot before they get to the voting booth," said Marci Andino, Executive Director of the S.C. State Election Commission. "There are more than 3.2 million registered voters in South Carolina, however, there are an additional estimated 500,000 citizens who are eligible but not registered.”
