What Voters Should Expect at the Polls for the June 9 Primary Election

If you plan on voting in-person for the June 9 primaries, the South Carolina State Election Commission has taken steps to protect the health of voters and poll managers.

Some polling places will be relocated or consolidated due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some facilities have declined to be used, and some poll managers have declined to serve. Before going to vote, check your polling location at

Poll managers will receive special Covid-19 training on applying social distancing and maintaining sanitary conditions in the polling place. Check-in stations and voting equipment will be spaced at least six feet apart.

Election officials are working to source:

  • Masks, face shields and gloves for poll managers
  • Sneeze guards for check-in stations
  • Sanitizing wipes for cleaning common surfaces
  • Hand sanitizer for voters and poll managers
  • Cotton swabs for making selections on the touchscreen

Voters should prepare by:

  • Making sure you are registered to vote, and your address is up to date.
  • Check your registration.
  • Register or update your address.
  • Bringing your Photo ID (or voter registration card if you do not have a Photo ID).
  • Wearing a protective mask if you have one.
  • Bringing your own pen for signing the poll list.
  • Practicing social distancing by spacing yourself at least six feet apart from others.
  • Being patient.
