Voting in South Carolina is anything but predictable. Whether through legislation or adjudication, the requirements for voting continue to change at a rapid pace. We are tracking all of the current changes here. Whether it’s absentee voting via mail, early voting in-person or voting on Election Day, we are making sure you’re up-to-date.
We maintain the only comprehensive female candidate database in the state. In 2020, South Carolina will vote on one United States Senator, all seven United States House Representatives, all members in both chambers of the South Carolina State House, and many school board and County offices. To elect more women, you have to know about them, and this database will provide you with information on the more than 460 women running for elected office across the state.
Women’s health, clean air and water, and hurricane evacuations are just a few of the areas where your vote matters. Learn more about how the people you elect impact you, your family, and your community.
