When voting in person, you'll be asked to show a photo ID, such as an ID issued by the SCDMV (driver's license, ID card, concealed weapons permit), a federal military ID, or a US passport. Learn more about required photo IDs.
If you're age 65+ —or if you're unable to vote during the two-week early voting period or on Election Day —voting absentee by mail is an option. There are many eligibility criteria. Find out who's eligible and how to apply.

What's this I hear about election crimes?
Effective 2022, election law violations (such as fraudulently voting, voting more than once, or impersonating a voter) are now felonies. It's also a felony to request more than five absentee applications or submit more than five absentee ballots in addition to your own. See 2022 SC Election Law Changes.
