SC Allows Absentee Voting by All in June Primary  (5-12-20) 

 Thanks to All! 

We thank our legislators, but we also thank all LWV members and other South Carolinians who have joined LWVSC's vigorous campaign to help safeguard our elections during the pandemic! There is no doubt that the outpouring of letters mailed to legislators while they were at home, urging action, played a role in bringing about this result. We are delighted beyond measure that the General Assembly took action today, extending the opportunity to vote absentee by mail or in person to all for the June primary -- and also delighted by your responsiveness to our campaign and by your actions!
