Early voting in SC GOP's presidential primary starts Monday. Here's what you need to know
The South Carolina Feb. 24 Republican presidential primary officially kicks off Monday.
In-person early voting starts Monday, and will run through Thursday, Feb. 22. Centers will be closed Sunday, Feb. 18 and Monday, Feb. 19 for the Presidents Day holiday.
Early voters centers open at 8:30 a.m. and close at 6 p.m.
The GOP presidential ballot will include seven names, including candidates who've dropped out but were certified to be on the ballot. They are:
- Ryan Binkley
- Chris Christie (suspended campaign)
- Ron DeSantis (suspended campaign)
- Nikki Haley
- Vivek Ramaswamy (suspended campaign)
- David Stuckenberg
- Donald Trump
The ballot also will include three advisory questions that voters can check yes or no:
- Should South Carolina law be changed to give people the right to register to vote with the political party of their choice?
- Should South Carolina adopt reforms to increase the independence and accountability of our judiciary by improving transparency and reducing conflicts of interest in the process of reviewing judicial qualifications and electing judges.
- Should it be an immediate legislative priority to protect South Carolina’s competitiveness and small businesses by changing state law so that a person’s responsibility for financial damages in a lawsuit is based on that person's actual share of responsibility?
And, no, voters can't cast a ballot in the GOP primary if they voted in this month's Democratic presidential contest.
