Voting in Charleston on Election Day

Tomorrow is the big day, AKA Election Day. Still sorting all the details? Don’t sweat. We’ve got ya covered. 👇

Pick your candidates

There are two types of people — those who know exactly who’s getting their vote and those who still haven’t researched who’s running. Both are okay. If you fall in the latter category, here’s a breakdown of local + state candidates on the ballot. If you fall in the former category, a refresher never hurt anyone.

Find your polling location

Before you get to your polling place + wait in line to cast a vote, make sure you’re registered.

Charleston County polling places will be open on Tues., Nov. 3 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, your polling location could have changed, so even if you think you know where to go, triple check. All you have to do is put in some personal information here (last name, last four digits of social security number, birthday), and you’ll be directed to a page with your voting information, including your polling place.

Grab your face mask + hand sanitizer

The CDC has recommended steps to take before + when voting in person:

Check your voting location and requirements in advance — they may have changed due to COVID-19.
Verify your voter registration information is correct in advance.
Make sure you have all necessary documents to avoid delays.
If possible, complete any registration forms prior to arriving at the polling location.
Review or complete a sample ballot at home to speed the process of casting your ballot.

Making sure your voice is heard is a pretty cool thing to do, and the best way to do that is through voting. Let’s knock this out of the park, Charleston.
