BRIEF ELECTION RULES
To vote in a South Carolina election, the registration deadline is 30 days before that election. (Mail in forms must be postmarked by that date.)

To register to vote or change your registration address, go to LWV's Voter Information Center, VOTE411, or to the SC Election Commission or any S.C. DMV office.

Polls are open on election days from 7 am until 7 pm.

Instructions for voting absentee by mail are at https://www.scvotes.org/absentee-voting. Return mail-in absentee ballots to your county voter registration office by 7:00 pm on the day of the election. You may vote absentee in person until 5:00 pm on the day before the election. In addition to election day in-person voting, your county offers early absentee voting polling sites; check with your county election office.
