To help ensure the upcoming State Primaries run as efficiently as possible, the State Election commission wants to remind everyone of upcoming voter registration deadlines and urge those already registered to update their information.

Those who wish to vote in the Primaries on June 8th must be registered by May 8thVoters who have moved from one county to another must be registered to vote in their new county by May 8th.

REGISTER:

  • Visit your county board of voter registration.
  • Download a voter registration form from scVOTES.org, complete the form, and either:
    • Mail the form to your county voter registration office, or
    • Fax the form to your county voter registration office, or
    • Scan the form and email the image as a file attachment to your county voter registration office
  • Visit your local Department of Motor Vehicles office.

Current registered voters can help ensure a smoother voting process for themselves - and their neighbors - by making sure their registration information is up to date.  "Having accurate registration information 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."
