Working on Election Day, Nov. 6? Worried you won't have time to vote? You can go ahead and vote in next month's midterm election if you can carve out the time to get to the Charleston County Board of Elections and Voter Registration office in North Charleston.
From now until 5 p.m. on Mon. Nov. 5 (the day before the election), you can head to the election office at 4367 Headquarters Road in North Charleston, fill out an application, and vote early.
Though the procedure is billed as "in-person absentee" voting, it covers pretty much anyone who can't make it to the polls for any one of 16 official reasons, including work, disability, age, or a vacation conflict.
Starting on Mon. Oct. 22, Charleston County residents will also be able to vote early at Seacoast Church branches in West Ashley (2049 Savannah Highway) and Mt. Pleasant (750 Long Point Road) from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
To do this, you must be registered to vote. You can do that in person at the office or online if you have a valid S.C. driver's license through Oct. 17. You must also bring a valid photo ID in the form of a S.C. driver's license, a federal military ID, a voter registration card with photo, a DMV ID card, or a U.S. Passport.
You can also download and print your absentee voting application, fill it out, mail it to the county elections office, and wait for your absentee ballot in the mail. You can check your voter registration status, and study up on your sample ballot on the S.C. Election Commission website.
Voters will cast ballots for governor, Congress, state, and local offices on Election Day.
