Saturday is voter registration deadline for June primary

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

If you're planning to cast a ballot in the June 10 South Carolina primary, but haven't registered to vote, you're running out of time.

The deadline to register is Saturday, one month before the primary.

South Carolina State Election Commission officials say voters who already have registered need to make sure their information on their current registration is still accurate. This includes people who have moved since registering.

Anyone who has moved from one county to another must register in the new county by the Saturday deadline. Anyone who has changed his or her name since registering should also update registration information.

Doing so, officials say, will help ensure a smoother voting process for you and everyone else in line at the polls.

Unregistered voters who intend to vote in the primary and registered voters who wish to confirm their registration information should visit scVOTES.org, where they will need their state-issued driver's license or identification card.

They may also download a voter registration form from scVOTES.org, which they can complete and send by mail, fax or email. Forms sent by mail must be postmarked with Saturday's date and forms sent as email attachments or by fax must be received by Saturday.

Tri-county election offices will not be open Saturday, officials say.
