Stay Informed

Even before poll areas had closed, the South Carolina State Election Commission announced the data on Monday afternoon showing that, on the first day of early voting, roughly 40,000 people voted.

South Carolina also witnessed increased traffic to the state’s voter information website, SCVotes.gov. Traffic to the site was so great that the website crashed and was down for much of the morning.

SC Polls Open

The site has since come back online. The 2022 mid term elections are projected to continue setting record breaking numbers of voters in South Carolina.
