COLUMBIA, S.C. (September 25, 2017) - The South Carolina State Election Commission, along with Americans across the nation, will be celebrating National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.  This is a nationwide effort to register voters before upcoming elections in November.  Celebrate democracy in America by encouraging individuals to exercise one of our most basic rights:  the right to vote!

The State Election Commission encourages all South Carolinians to exercise that right in all elections, including the more than 150 elections being held throughout the state on November 7.  The first step to doing that is registering to vote.  But it's not only November.  There's an election happening nearly every Tuesday somewhere in the state.  Click here for a complete list of upcoming elections.

Statement Regarding PACEI Request for SC Voter Data

Posted on: Thu, 07/06/2017 - 12:31 By: cwhitmire

COLUMBIA, SC (July 6, 2017) - The S.C. State Election Commission (SEC), in considering the request for voter data made by the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity (PACEI), has carefully reviewed applicable state law and has consulted with the S.C. Attorney General’s office.  The SEC has determined that release of voter data to anyone who is not a registered South Carolina voter is not permitted by state law.  The agency may only provide voter data to registered South Carolina voters.  This rule is not specific to the PACEI request and applies to any request for voter data from any individual or organization from outside the state.

Some data requested by the PACEI is not collected by the SEC, and other data is never released:

  • At no time does the SEC release Social Security Numbers, in whole or in part, to anyone, whether a voter or not.
  • The SEC has no data on a voter’s party affiliation, as South Carolina does not have registration by party.
  • At no time does the SEC have any information about how people vote, only information about which elections a voter has participated in.
