I KNOW WHAT TO BRING:
In South Carolina voters must show valid photo identification in order to vote. Acceptable forms of photo identification include:
- South Carolina Driver’s License
- South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles ID Card
- South Carolina Voter Registration Card with Photo
- Federal Military ID
- US Passport
If you do not have one of these photo IDs: Make your voting experience as fast and easy as possible by getting a free Photo ID from the DMV or your county voter registration office.
If you forget to bring your Photo ID to the polling place: You may vote a provisional ballot that will count only if you show your Photo ID to the election commission prior to certification of the election (usually Thursday or Friday after the election).
If you can’t get a photo ID: Bring your non-photo voter registration card with you to the polling place. You may vote a provisional ballot after signing an affidavit stating you have a reasonable impediment to obtaining Photo ID. A reasonable impediment is any valid reason, beyond your control, which created an obstacle to obtaining Photo ID:
- a disability or illness
- a conflict with your work schedule
- a lack of transportation
- a lack of a birth certificate
- family responsibilities
- a religious objection to being photographed
- any other obstacle you find reasonable
This ballot will count unless someone proves to the election commission that you are lying about your identity or having the listed impediment.
On Saturday February 27th, make your voice heard in our Democratic Presidential Primary.
