Staff Report



PICKENS COUNTY — A Republican Presidential Preference Primary will be held on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016, and a Democratic Presidential Preference Primary will be held on Feb. 27, 2016.

Voters can participate in only one party’s presidential preference primary. The deadline to register to vote and be eligible to vote in either Presidential Preference Primary is Jan. 27, 2016.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These primaries will be held under the rules for providing Photo ID at the polling place. Voters will be asked to provide one of the following Photo IDs at their polling place:

• S.C. Driver’s License

• ID Card issued by S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles

• S.C. Voter Registration Card with Photo

• Federal Military ID

• U.S. Passport

Voters who encounter an obstacle to getting a Photo ID should bring their voter registration card without a photo with them to their polling place. These voters can then sign an affidavit swearing to their identity and to their obstacle to obtaining a Photo ID and vote a paper provisional ballot.

This ballot will count unless the Board of Voter Registration and Elections of Pickens County has grounds to believe the affidavit is false. Visit pickenselections.org or call 864-898-5948 or 864-898-5949 for more information.
