The general election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 6, but South Carolina registered voters will be able to cast absentee ballots starting Monday, October 8. South Carolina election law provides 15 reasons to allow absentee voting, including being 65 and older, work schedule conflicts or being an out-of-town college student. The absentee voting period will extend to Monday, November 5 at 5 pm.

Charleston County will have three absentee voting stations. The station at Royal Missionary Baptist Church at 4761 Luella Avenue in North Charleston opens Monday at 8:30 am and will operate from 8:30 am to 5 pm every weekday through November 5. It will also open on two Saturdays – October 20 and 27 from 9 am to noon. Absentee voting stations will open in West Ashley and Mt. Pleasant Monday, October 22 at 8:30 am and maintain the same hours as the North Charleston station. They will also be open Saturday, October 27 from 9 am to noon. The West Ashley station is Seacoast Church at 2049 Savannah Highway and the Mt. Pleasant station is Seacoast Church at 750 Long Point Road. They will remain open until Monday, November 5 at 5 pm.

Due to government offices being closed due to Tropical Storm Florence evacuation orders, the voter registration deadline has been extended to Wednesday, October 17 at 5 pm. Voter registration may be done by mail, on-line at SCVotes.org or in person at the Charleston County election office at 4367 Headquarters Road in North Charleston (near Leeds Avenue).
