Voting Absentee?

Will you be voting by Absentee Ballot in the November 3, 2020 General Election?

Have you requested your Absentee Ballot Application yet? Do you know that you can submit an online request for the application?

Go to  Click on "Get My Absentee Application".   Follow the instructions. 

The Richland County Elections Commission will mail the application to you. Once you receive it, follow the instructions on it, and then mail it back to the RC Elections Commission.

The next step is to wait a few days, and then you can check online to learn if your application was delivered to the Commission.

Go to  This time, click on "Check Your Absentee Ballot".

Just above the Submit button, check the box for the Statewide General Election, and then click Submit.

The entries at the bottom will inform you of the status of your Request, your Application and your Ballot.

Once you receive and mark your Ballot, you'll be able to mail it back or take it to an Absentee/Satellite Location at North Springs Park Community Center - 1320 Clemson Road, Columbia, SC 29229 - October 7, 2020 - November 2, 2020 (8:30 am - 5:00 pm).
