This Saturday is the last chance to make sure you can vote in the coming November election. October 2 is the voter registration deadline. It’s also the time to make sure your address is updated. Otherwise, you may not be able to vote.
Voters who have moved from one county to another must be registered to vote in their new county by the deadline. Chris Whitmire of the state election commission:
If you move from one county to another, you have to register in your new county to be eligible to vote. Your voter registration doesn’t follow you, you have to be registered in your county to vote. Voter registration is conducted on the county level. So, if you lived in Columbia and you moved over to West Columbia since the last election, you need to register in Lexington County.
To register, download a voter registration form from www.scVOTES.org, complete the form, and either mail the form to your county voter registration office postmarked by October 2, fax the form to your county voter registration office by October 2 or, scan the form and email the image as a file attachment to your county voter registration office. If it is mailed, it must be received by October 2.
