South Carolina voter totals are down, but women still outnumber men
The South Carolina Election Commission released the latest voter registration totals on Wednesday.
Overall, there are 3.25 million registered voters in the state heading into this year’s presidential primaries. That’s 168,000 voters fewer than there were at the beginning of 2023.
Totals for women and men dropped at roughly the same rate, but the number of women voters registered in South Carolina still exceeds the number of men registered in every county and across every racial demographic category except for one – voters whose race is unknown. There were 1,725 men registered in this category, 23 more than women.
The biggest gulf between women and men was among white voters. White women outnumbered men by 162,000, with the largest age gap among the 65-and-older set.
Black women outnumber Black men by nearly the same total, 158,000, with most of that gap among voters between the ages of 25 and 64.
