The Nov. 7 general election is just around the corner. Voters who want to skip potential lines on Election Day have the option to vote early at the Office of Voter Registration and Elections, located at 303 N. Hazard St., Georgetown.
Early voting will be available from Oct. 23 through Nov. 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.
Voters are reminded that S.C. election laws changed last year to eliminate in-person absentee voting and introduce early voting. Voters who wish to vote early do not need any special reason to do so. Mail-in absentee voting is still allowed. An absentee ballot may be requested online at gtcounty.org/vote, or by calling the Georgetown County Elections Office at (843) 545-3339. Absentee ballot applications should be returned no later than Oct. 27. Absentee ballots must be received in the Elections Office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day. More information about who qualifies to vote absentee is available at https://scvotes.gov/voters/absentee-voting/.
This year’s general election will include mayoral and council seats for the City of Georgetown and the Towns of Andrews and Pawleys Island. Sample ballots are available to view on our “Upcoming Elections” page. That’s also the location for voters to find their voting precinct.
Anyone wishing to vote in the general election must be registered at least 30 days prior to the election. Voters who are already registered are advised to review their registration information now and make any updates.
