Hi South Carolina, if you want to vote in  the 2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take: register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered.

If  you have a South Carolina drivers license,   you can register online. If not, you’ll need to  print out an application form and mail it in.   Links to both are at  But either way you register, you need to   do it by October 9th.

Then it’s time to make your plan   for how you’re going to vote. If you’re going to be out of town,   can’t get to the polls because you’re ill or  disabled, or maybe you want to vote in South   Carolina but you go to college somewhere  else, then you can vote absentee.   To do that, you need to fill out a form to request  your ballot and send it to your County Elections   office by November 4th. But the sooner you do  it the better, so you have time for them to get   your application, mail you a ballot, and for you  to mail it back no later than November 8th.

If   you qualify to vote absentee, you can also vote an  absentee ballot in person at your county elections   office from October 19th to November 7th. For everyone else, you’ll need to vote in person   on election day on November 8th. You can  look up where you’ll vote at this link.   Polls are open from 7am to 7pm.

You’ll also need to bring a photo ID   with you. A South Carolina drivers license,  state ID, passport, or military ID will work.   If you don’t have one of those, you can get a  free voter ID from your local DMV office.   So once you have your plan for how you’re  going to vote, where you need to go,   what time you’re going to vote, and what ID you’re  going to bring, you just need to follow the plan,   and go vote on November 8th. If you want to know everything that’s   on your ballot ahead of time,  you can find a sample ballot at so you have time to  research candidates and make your decisions.   Now, you don’t have to vote for everything  for you ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from congress   to your city council or school board.

There are links for everything you need to   register, vote absentee, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
