Next up

Primaries are over and party candidates are decided. See details on the ballot so far under the elections tab at left.

The next important date in the political process is July 15. Petition candidates have until that day to file for office.

August 15 is the deadline for nonpartisan candidates to file for office. This is important in Georgetown County because our school board is nonpartisan and candidates must file by this time.

The date is also the deadline to certify petition candidates, and to get referendum questions on the ballot.

Youth voter registration

Our League, partnered with Delta Sigma Theta Georgetown Alumnae Chapter registered 132 young people in April. Several more took forms or other information about how to register.

We held registration opportunities in all four high schools, plus the Howard Adult Center and Horry Georgetown Technical College.

We received a grant from the LWV Education Fund to cover expenses such as printing posters.

If your organization would like our experienced members to come to an event and help people register to vote, please let us know. Those who are not registered may do so until October 8 for the November 8 general election.
