If you’re new to the voting process in South Carolina there are a few things that you should know.
1. South Carolina has a uniform statewide voting system. No matter where you move in South Carolina you will vote on the same piece of equipment.
2. The conduction of elections is handled by each county’s individual election commissions. This is important to remember when moving from one county to another. If you move from one county to another you will need to contact the voter registration office in your new county of residence.
3. The State Election Commission’s website: scvotes.org. This website has some great information and is geared towards the voting public. There are videos and a flash demonstration on how to vote on the new electronic voting machines.
With the statewide general election just a couple of weeks away, it is important to gain as much knowledge as possible on the voting process and the candidates running for office.
