Several people have asked how to vote absentee for our November 3, 2015 Seabrook Town elections.
Charleston County conducts and presides over the elections for the town, so the process is the same as if you needed to vote absentee for national or state elections. You have to apply to receive an absentee ballot and then you do the actual voting. This can be done in person or by mail.
If you want to do it in person, you must go to the Charleston County Election Office at 4367 Headquarters Road, Charleston, SC to complete an application and cast your ballot. This can be done up to 5:00 pm on the day before the election and you will still need a photo ID.
If you would rather do it by mail, you can get the application online at http://www.scvotes.org/2009/10/15/absentee_voting or you can have the application mailed to you.
After filling out the application and signing it, you can return the application by mail, email, fax or take it up to Charleston County Election Office. The Town of Seabrook office has kindly offered to fax the application to the County if necessary. The deadlines for this are listed on the website. At that point, you will receive an absentee ballot in the mail, which you will have to return either by mail or in person. Again, check the deadlines for this.
For more detailed information, go to the Charleston County voting website http://www.scvotes.org/ and then click on the right hand side where it says “Get My Absentee Application.”
