The GOP is still looking for more Poll Watchers & Poll Managers/Clerks!  We will train and equip you with what you need to be a knowledgeable, polite, and effective observer as a Poll Watcher. 

We are also looking to place Republicans on the Poll Manager/Clerk list to be submitted to the county at the end of the month. 

For a primary, we have a unique opportunity to submit 1 Poll Manager/Clerk per precinct. If you are interested, please send me to scelections2022@gmail.com.

Please help recruit and register new voters if you can.  Also, be sure to go to SC Votes and check your registration to ensure when you can vote and not have to do a provisional ballot. Most of all, please plan to Vote!
