No photo ID, no vote? That’s a myth. Don’t let alarmist rumors about South Carolina’s new photo ID law keep you from the polls on Tuesday. It will not be in effect on Nov. 6, Election Day. The new law does not go into effect until Jan. 1, 2013. To vote on Nov. 6, you must have a S.C. driver’s license, a S.C. DMV ID card, or a voter registration card. To learn more about the new photo ID law, visit But remember…you do NOT need a photo ID to cast your vote this Election Day.

  • More information

    Tuesday’s election is a big one, with voters casting their ballot for everyone from President, to who will represent the new Seventh Congressional District, to important state and local offices.

    Here’s some important basics you need to know about voting:

    Precinct hours: Polls in Horry and Georgetown counties will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday (Nov. 6). If you are still in line at 7 p.m., you will still be able to cast your vote.

    I’m not sure where I go to vote. What do I do? Check the bottom of your voter registration card and you will see information about your precinct and polling place. If you can’t find your voter registration card or are still confused about where to go, call the Horry County Election Commission at 915-5440 or the Georgetown County Election Commission at 545-3339.

    Online precinct information:

    I am disabled and may have difficulty voting. What do I do? Assistance is available at all polling places for the disabled in order to enable them to cast their ballot.
