FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COLUMBIA, S.C. (November 19, 2007) - To help ensure the upcoming presidential primaries run as efficiently as possible, the S.C. Election Commission wants to remind everyone of upcoming voter registration deadlines and urge those already registered to update their registration information.
Those who wish to vote in the Republican primary must register or update their information no later than Dec. 19. Those who wish to vote in the Democratic primary must register or update their information no later than Dec. 26.
S.C. Election Commission Executive Director Marci Andino said voters can help ensure a smoother voting process for themselves- and other voters- by making sure their registration information is up to date and correct before these specific deadlines.
"Having accurate records helps ensure all South Carolina voters cast ballots at the appropriate locations," Andino said. "If a voter updates his registration information, he can reduce the potential for delays when he signs in on Election Day-and that could have a significant impact on wait time for all voters."
