In South Carolina, all voters may vote absentee this year, listing state of emergency as their reason. In other years, there are a variety of reasons you may vote absentee, including an employment or vacation conflict, living or serving overseas, a physical disability, or being over 65. Currently, you must apply for an absentee ballot to vote by mail. Several locations across the tricounty area will be opened for in-person absentee voting before the election.
