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.

STUDENT VOTING

The Supreme Court upheld the right of college students to choose their “residence” and vote accordingly (Symm v. United States).
