Statement Regarding PACEI Request for SC Voter Data

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.

Time is Running Short for Absentee by Mail Voters

Absentee Voting Up more than 20% over 2012

COLUMBIA, SC (October 26, 2016) - The S.C. State Election Commission wants to make sure voters who need to vote absentee by mail return their applications as soon as possible to ensure they are able to return their ballots prior to the election day deadline. 

According to the U.S. Postal Service, the transit time for first class mail is a minimum of two days and can be as many as five days.  Voters should be aware of these transit times when voting absentee by mail.

What this means for voters:
