3. S.C. Voter Registration Card with Photo

4. Federal Military ID

HOW TO GET A PHOTO ID:

If you do not currently have one of the Photo IDs above, you can make your voting experience as fast and easy as possible by getting one free of charge:

 

Get a voter registration card with a photo from your county voter registration and elections office.

Get a DMV ID card at a local DMV office. Check with DMV or scdmvonline for required documents

 

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE PHOTO ID ON ELECTION DAY

If you have a reasonable impediment to obtaining Photo ID, you may vote a provisional ballot after showing your non-photo voter registration card.  A reasonable impediment is any valid reason, beyond your control, which created an obstacle to obtaining Photo ID.  Some examples include:

  • Religious objection to being photographed
  • Disability or illness
  • Work schedule
  • Lack of transportation
  • Lack of birth certificate
  • Family responsibilites
  • Election within short time frame of implementation for Photo ID law (January 1, 2013)
  • Any other obstacle you find reasonable

 

TO VOTE UNDER THE REASONABLE IMPEDIMENT EXCEPTION

1. Present your current, non-photo voter registration card at the polling place.

2. Sign an affidavit stating why you could not obtain a Photo ID

3. Cast a provisional ballot that will be counted unless the county election commission has reason to believe   

    your affidavit is false.

 

If you do NOT have Photo ID and  do NOT have a reasonable impediment to obtaining one, or simply forgot to bring your Photo ID with you to the polling place, you may still vote a provisional ballot.  However, for your vote to be counted, you must provide one of the Photo IDs to the county election commission prior to certification.  For more information, visit www.scvotes.org
