SC Counts: A Statewide Day of Action

SC Counts: A Statewide Day of Action

SC has a lot on the line in 2020. We must immediately protect our public health and we must also protect our representation and fair share of federal resources for the next 10 years. By bringing together community leaders, nonprofit organizations, and an army of volunteers, we will offer no cost Covid-19 testing, free flu vaccinations, and census completion. Some sites will also offer voter registration, Real ID through the DMV, library cards, and other community services.

SC Counts: A Statewide Day of Action, is a collaborative effort of SC Census 2020, SC Association of Counties, the SC EMS Association, SC Women in Leadership, and a host of other groups. We are working to ensure every resident of SC is valued, acknowledged, and counted.
