Charleston County has released the sample ballot for the November 3, 2020, election. You may take this Sample Ballot with you to the polling place, but you are not allowed to display or distribute it at the polling place. This ballot is similar to both the absentee ballot and in-person ballot.
In addition to President and Vice President, U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives District 01, Seabrookers will be voting for several different state and local offices. There are also three local questions that require a “yes” or “no” answer.

If you are voting on an absentee ballot, please remember
- Check for errors and mark the ovals on the ballot completely and as darkly as possible.
- Vote and return the ballot to the county voter registration office either by mail or personal delivery. Place the ballot in the “ballot here-in” envelope and place the “ballot here-in” envelope in the return envelope. Be sure to sign the voter’s oath and have your signature witnessed. Anyone can witness your signature. A notary is not necessary. This requirement keeps changing, so we recommend a signature. Even if the final ruling is that you don’t need a witness, having one won’t invalidate your ballot.
- Ballots must be received by the county voter registration office by 7:00 p.m. on election day.
- Ballots returned by mail should be mailed no later than one week prior to election day to help ensure timely delivery.
