Voter Registration Deadlines

The Board of Voter Registration and Elections of Beaufort County would like to remind people the last day to register to vote is quickly approaching.

The deadline to register to vote has been extended for an additional 10 days, to end on Wednesday, October 17, 2018.    The 10-day extension was necessary to protect the voting rights of South Carolina residents due to the widespread impact of Hurricane Florence.  Many citizens have been displaced and are struggling to recover, and many county voter registration offices were closed for considerable periods of time.

While the deadline was extended due to the impact of Hurricane Florence, the October 17 deadline applies to voters in all counties.   Read more about the extension here.

The last day to register to vote:
In-person, Email/Fax/Online, or Mail:    Wednesday, October 17, 2018


Voter Registration Forms can be obtained at the Beaufort and Bluffton offices, emailed, faxed, mailed or downloaded at http://www.bcgov.net/vote/forms.php.

For more information or to find out if you are registered to vote, please contact the office at (843) 255-6900 or email voter@bcgov.net
