For the first time, South Carolina voters will be able to cast a ballot early without an excuse.

Regular early voting begins tomorrow across the state, now that Governor Henry McMaster and legislators signed a bill into law that allows anyone to cast a ballot early without an excuse for the two weeks before Election Day in the same way they would by going to the polls.

Primary elections will be held June 14.  Early voting will be available starting May 31 every day until then, except Sundays.

All counties are required to have at least one polling location open.

A list of sites can be found on the South Carolina Election Commission’s website.
