2014 Primary Runoff FAQs

Posted on: Wed, 06/18/2014 - 10:46 By: cwhitmire

Q.  If I voted in one party's primary on June 10, can I vote in the other party's runoff on June 24?

A.   No.  If you voted in one party's primary, you can vote only in the runoff of the same party.  In  other words, if you voted in the Democratic Primary, you are limited to the Democratic Runoff; if you voted in the Republican Primary, you are limited to the Republican Runoff.

Q.  I didn't vote on June 10.  Can I vote in the runoff?

A.  Yes.  If you were eligible but did not vote on June 10, you can vote in either party's runoff.

Q.  What candidates and/or offices are in the Primary Runoffs?

A.   The candidates and offices on a particular ballot will differ depending on the primary in which you're voting (Republican or Democratic), and the county and districts in which you reside.  To find out what candidates will appear on your ballot, visit scVOTES.org, and click "Get My Sample Ballot" in the mySCVOTES section of the homepage.

May 10 Voter Registration Deadline Approaches

COLUMBIA, S.C. (May 5, 2014) - To help ensure voters are prepared for the June 10 Primaries, the State Election Commission wants to remind everyone of the upcoming voter registration deadline and urge those already registered to update their information.

TO VOTE IN THE JUNE 10 PRIMARIES, YOU MUST BE REGISTERED BY MAY 10.

  • If you have moved, make sure you are ready to vote by updating your registration.
  • If you have moved from one county to another, you must register in your new county by May 10 to be eligible to vote.
  • If you've moved within your county or changed your name recently, it will help ensure a smoother voting process for you - and your neighbors - by updating your information prior to June 10.

"Having an accurate voter record helps ensure a voter's eligibility to vote in an election," says Executive Director Marci Andino.  "It also reduces the potential for delays in the sign-in process at polling places - and that can have a significant impact on wait time for all voters."
