May is Voter Education Month

Posted on: Wed, 07/26/2006 - 14:55 By: jdebney

As part of the South Carolina’s Help America Vote Act (HAVA) State Plan, the South Carolina Election Commission on May 3, 2006, announced May as Voter Education Month. Governor Mark Sanford signed a proclamation and the SC General Assembly passed a joint resolution making the declaration official. (see below)

Representatives attending the Statehouse event included individuals who will vote on their own for the first time – thanks to the accessibility provided by the new, ADA compliant, uniform voting system. Other attendees included Senator Larry Martin and Representative John Scott, both speaking on behalf of the legislative leadership who helped to make South Carolina a national leader in the election process.

In a state with over 2 million eligible voters, more than 600,000 people are not registered. Voter Education Month will include the SC Votes Tour, local events and demonstrations all aimed at encouraging everyone to vote.

Poll Manager Training Videos

Posted on: Wed, 04/05/2006 - 15:57 By: tvaules

The State Election Commission has produced two poll manager training videos in an effort to reinforce other training provided on the state and local levels.  The first video walks the poll worker step-by-step through the election day procedure from opening the machines in the morning to closing the machines in the evening.  The second video covers what is expected of poll managers when it comes to disability access to polling places.  This video addresses what the poll manager can do to make their polling place accessible and to make voting easier for those with disabilities.  If something is unclear, or you have questions concerning issues not covered in these videos, please contact your county election commission.
 

Both videos are available for viewing in high and low bandwidth feeds. Be patient, depending on your connection they may take some time to load.

There is also a new menu category on the left for poll manager links.

COLUMBIA, SC— SEC Executive Director Marci Andino today urged all New Orleans’ Hurricane Katrina evacuees, who have temporarily relocated to South Carolina, to immediately contact the Louisiana Secretary of State in order to participate in the upcoming Orleans Parish elections. Elections postponed in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita will be held April 22 and May 20.

“I want to ensure that no eligible voter in South Carolina is denied an opportunity to vote, even if they are voting in another state’s elections,” Andino said. “It’s important that all evacuees exercise their right to vote in Louisiana’s upcoming elections."
