Charleston Co. residents asked to weigh in on redrawing voting lines

Every 10 years after the U.S. census, officials redraw voting lines to balance the population in the state senate and U.S. House districts.

This year, South Carolina will get a new seventh congressional district.

State senators are asking voters who live in Charleston and surrounding counties to come to Thursday night's public hearing. They want to hear your opinions and concerns about changing the boundary lines.

The meeting is at Trident Tech in North Charleston at 6:30 p.m.
