CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – More than 100,000 people cast their ballot in South Carolina’s first no-excuse-needed early voting period. Those who chose not to vote early will head to the polls on Tuesday to decide who they want to lead their party in the statewide primary election.

Polls across South Carolina will open on Tuesday at 7:00 a.m. and remain open until 7:00 p.m.

Will I need a photo ID to vote?

Yes, when voting in person, you will be asked to show one of the following at your polling place:

  • SC Driver’s License
  • SC Department of Motor Vehicles ID Card
  • SC Voter Registration Card with Photo
  • Federal Military ID
  • US Passport

How do I find my polling place?

You can verify your precinct and find out your polling location by visiting scvotes.gov and selecting “Find my Polling Place.” Polling places will be open 7 AM to 7 PM on Election Day. Anyone in line by 7 PM will be allowed to vote.

Am I registered to vote?

You can check your voter registration status by visiting scvotes.gov and selecting “Check my Voter Registration.” You’ll need to enter your name, county, date of birth, and the last four digits of your social security number.

Can I still register to vote?

Unfortunately, no. South Carolina law requires voters to register at least 30 days prior to Election Day.

What kind of changes can I expect at the poll?

New district maps were redrawn ahead of the June primary. Some voters may be surprised to find they are in a new Congressional or Senate district when heading to the polls. If you are unsure, take a moment to download a sample ballot based on your voting precinct by clicking here.

Races we’re watching

Democratic candidates Joe Cunningham and State Sen. Mia McLeod are vying for their party’s support in the gubernatorial race against Incumbent Gov. Henry McMaster while Republican U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace is looking to keep her seat in the First Congressional District against opponent Katie Arrington.

Nearly a dozen candidates are looking to run for State Superintendent of Education after current Superintendent Molly Spearman announced she would not seek re-election.

State Rep. Krystle Matthews hopes to earn enough support from Democrats to take on U.S. Sen. Tim Scott and Republican Duke Buckner is looking to earn enough votes to compete against Congressman Jim Clyburn for the November General Election.

What questions will I see on the ballot?

Republican voters will find three “yes or no” advisory questions on their ballot:

  • Should people have the right to register with the political party of their choice when they register to vote?
  • Should candidates for local school boards be able to run as a candidate of the political party of their choice, just like candidates for other elected offices?
  • In a situation where there is more than one person responsible for damages in a lawsuit, do you support changing South Carolina law so that each person should pay damages based on that person’s actual share of fault?

There are no advisory questions for those voting Democrat.

How can I find election results?
