SAVE LIVES. VOTE SAFELY. EMAIL YOUR STATE REPS NOW!
The South Carolina Election Board has proposed Vote by Mail for All so the election can be conducted "safely and securely." Time is short to get this done. So write now to your elected officials (see below) to demand they adopt the Board’s proposals:
- All voters able to vote absentee.
- Absentee ballots don't have to be witnessed.
- Curbside voting at designated locations instead of at every polling place.
- Election officials provided more time to process absentee ballots or extend the date in which counties must certify the election results.
Rep. Bill Taylor, R-Aiken, has said "the best approach to maximizing opportunities to vote in the general election are being discussed and evaluated by legislators on a daily basis and will be resolved in September when we return to session."
In these - or your own words - say:
I am your constituent. I live in [Town]. I’m writing to urge you to take action to keep voters safe.
You must adopt the state Board of Election’s recommendations to conduct a safe and secure election.
Allow all voters to use absentee ballots. Allow curbside voting. Allow more time to process votes.
You must protect us. Protect our right to vote. Save lives.
