Key things to know about the June 9 Primaries

Yes, the Primary elections this summer are still on the schedule. Below are some quick facts you need to know.

In-person absentee voting at county voter registration offices began May 4. You can read more about who qualifies for absentee voting here. Unfortunately, our State has not deemed the risk of COVID-19 worthy of making any changes to these qualifications. The State Democratic Party (SCDP) has filed suit in the SC Supreme Court on behalf of your voting rights, but it remains to be seen what will come of it. If you go out to participate in the Primary – please take all recommended precautions!

For the Democratic Party, the only names on the ballot will be for US Congress, SC-3:

For the Republican Party, there are too many names to list who are vying for spots in the US Senate, SC Senate, and SC Sheriff. 

In South Carolina, you are allowed to vote in any Party’s Primary, but you can only choose one to participate in. We encourage you to learn more about our Democratic candidates above and make your choice as to who should go onto the November election.
