HOW TO VOTE IN SOUTH CAROLINA

Starting in 2013, S.C. voting law requires voters to bring a photo ID, such as a driver’s license, to the polls on Election Day. Previously, voters also could cast ballots if they had their voter registration card, which does not have a picture. The new law also allows voters to get a photo ID at their local election office and to vote a provisional ballot if they have a reasonable excuse why they could not get such an ID.
