Sale of Voter Registration Lists

NOTICE:  LIST SALES AND THE REDISTRICTING PROCESS

The SEC has been provided updated district maps by the South Carolina Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office and is currently engaged in the process of implementing new voting district lines. This is a complicated process that requires careful review and adjustment for errors. Until the entire process has been completed, the SEC cannot guarantee that all voter lists purchased through this service will be in their final form.

Replacement files or refunds will NOT be issued due to a purchased list not fully reflecting current districts.  This web page and notice will be updated as soon as the redistricting implementation and review is complete.
