The final batch of absentee ballots for Tuesday’s election goes into the mail today, voting officials said.
So far, more than 28,400 absentee ballots have been received in Richland County and about 16,000 in Lexington County.
Absentee ballots must be delivered to election officials by 7 p.m. Tuesday to count.
If the ballot requested doesn’t arrive in time, you can vote in person Tuesday.
But you first must report to local election officials to avoid confusion before proceeding to the polls. Call (803) 576-2240 in Richland County and (803) 785-8361 in Lexington County for more information.
Some voters who registered online may find they are ineligible to cast ballots Tuesday.
The likely cause is failure to update a new address. Addresses for voting and your driver’s license must match.
People who registered to vote after Oct. 6 are ineligible to take part in Tuesday’s election and will receive information afterward for balloting in the future.
Anyone with questions about eligibility or other aspects of voting should contact local election officials or go to www.scvotes.org
