Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) and Charleston County Board of Elections and Voter Registration (BEVR) are working together for the third year to host several voter registration drives between April and September, and patrons will have the opportunity to register to vote at 10 of CCPL’s branches.
“Voting is one of our most fundamental rights as Americans, and it’s important for us at CCPL to provide resources to our patrons that can enable them to better practice that right,” said CCPL Executive Director Nicolle Davies. “By collaborating with the County’s Board of Elections, we are able to offer more locations and accessibility to residents to register to vote.”
Between April 13 and Sept. 29, Charleston County residents will have several opportunities to visit one of the 10 participating branches and register to vote.
“Through this partnership, instead of coming down to our headquarters, residents also have the option of visiting their closest library branch, which we hope removes another barrier in getting our citizens to practice their civic duty,” said BEVR Director Joe Debney. “We are always working to find ways to make this process more accessible for our future voters.”
County residents who visit one of the drives can register to vote, sign up for photo ID registration cards, update address and name changes, request duplicate cards, request absentee ballots and more. If you are interested in registering to vote, click here to find out what you need to bring.
