2019 Municipal Elections


  • Make sure your voter registration is current by checking your registration information at or with the My scVOTES app.

  • If you've moved within your county, you need to update your address as soon as possible and before election day.

  • Get a sample ballot at or with the My scVOTES app.

  • Educate yourself on the candidates and questions.  Knowing how you're going to vote prior to entering the voting booth can reduce wait times for everyone on Election Day.

  • Make sure you have one of the following Photo IDs:  SC Driver's License, SC DMV ID Card, SC Voter Registration Card with a Photo, Federal Military ID or US Passport.

  • If you do not have Photo ID, make your voting experience as fast and easy as possible by getting a free one from DMV or your county elections office, available even on election day.

  • Get more information by following scVOTES on Facebook and Twitter and by visiting


  • Consider voting early by absentee ballot.  If you are disabled, aged 65 or older, or are unable to go to the polls on Election Day, you may be eligible to vote by absentee ballot.  Vote absentee in person at your county elections office or request an absentee-by-mail application at or by calling your county elections office.  Visit for a complete list of reason to vote absentee.

  • Know where to vote.  Find your polling place at or through the My scVOTES app.

  • Don't forget to bring your Photo ID to the polling place.

  • If you forget to bring your photo ID, you can vote a provisional ballot that will count only if you show your Photo ID to the county elections office prior to the certification of the election (on Thursday after the Statewide Primaries).

  • If you can't get a Photo ID, remember to bring your non-photo voter registration card with you to the polling place.  You may vote a provisional ballot after signing an affidavit stating you have a reasonable impediment to obtaining Photo ID.  A reasonable impediment is any valid reason, beyond your control, which created an obstacle to obtaining Photo ID.

  • Vote on November 5th.  Polls will be open 7AM to 7PM.

  • Take a selfie in front of one of our new "I Voted" posters at your polling place.  Share the photo through social media to encourage your friends and family to exercise their right to vote!
