Vote on Election Day
- Election officials are taking steps to protect the health of voters and poll managers:

- Voters should prepare by:
- Making sure you are registered to vote, and your address is up to date.
- Bringing your Photo ID (or voter registration card if you do not have a Photo ID).
- Checking your polling place at scVOTES.org before going to the polls.
- 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.
