Vote TODAY – Tuesday November 7th!

TODAY is the General Election for several critical races in our county; the State Senate District 42 Special Election, and your local municipal elections.  Here’s what you need to know:

When can I vote?

  • Polls are open until 7:00pm, today, Tuesday November 7 

Where can I vote?

Who do I vote for?

  • State Senate District 42 Special Election: Rep. Deon Tedder is the Democratic Nominee and will be an excellent State Senator for our area.  He needs your vote in this election to defeat a MAGA Trump Republican candidate and keep this seat in Democratic hands after the retirement of former State Senator Marlon Kimpson. (Check the map here to see if you live in Senate District 42)!
  • Municipal Elections: Several cities and towns are holding Municipal Elections today (Awendaw, Charleston, Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, James Island, Lincolnville, McClellanville, Mt. Pleasant, North Charleston, Ravenel, Rockville, Seabrook Island, and Summerville).  These are non-partisan elections and the Charleston County Democratic Party does not officially endorse or support candidates without a party affiliation.  We strongly encourage voters to learn more about their non-partisan candidates through local media outlets (here and here) and other reputable voter guides (here).

How do I find more information about voting?

  • On you can confirm your registration, polling location, view your sample ballot, and much more!

What’s this I’ve heard about runoffs?

  • Some local elections, including for the City of Charleston’s Mayor and Council, require a runoff if no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote in the general election. If a runoff is necessary in any race, it will be held on November 21st.  We’ll keep you posted on what you need to know if & when that happens!
