What You Need to Know about the June 12 S.C. Primary

With the June 12 South Carolina primaries five days away, a lot of voters have raised questions about the details and process.

The best way to find out more, and to veiw a personalized sample ballot, is to visit The Anderson County Board of Voter and Registration office can also answer basic questions at (864) 260-4035.

Each voter must decide whether to vote in the Republican primary or Democratic Primary. 

When South Carolina voters head to the polls for the primaries next Tuesday, they will have the option to vote on more than just the candidates. Both will include the governor's race, and where you live determines what other offices will be on your ballot. The ballot will also include non-binding advisory questions on their ballots.

Those questions on the Democratic ballot are:

'Do you support a state law allowing doctors to prescribe medical marijuana to patients?'


'Do you support passing a state law requiring the governor of South Carolina to accept all federal revenues offered to support Medicaid and Medicaid expansion efforts in the state?'" 

And on the Republican ballot:

"Do you support President Trump's tax agenda?"


"Should South Carolinians designate party affiliation when registering to vote?"

None of the questions carry any legal power.
