Voters Encouraged to Register or Update Their Information Prior to May 8th

To help ensure the upcoming State Primaries run as efficiently as possible, the State Election Commission and the Pickens County Registration & Elections Commission wants to remind everyone of upcoming voter registration deadlines and urge those already registered to update their information.

Current registered voters can help ensure a smoother voting process for themselves – and their neighbors – by making sure their registration information is up to date. “Having accurate registration information helps ensure a voter’s eligibility to vote in an election,” says State Election Commission Executive Director Marci Andino. “It also reduces the potential for delays in the sign-in process at polling places – and that can have a significant impact on wait time for all voters.”  “If you have moved or changed your name, it is imperative that you update your voter registration information with us.  Otherwise, you will not be on the registration books correctly,” says Rodney Allen, Executive Director of the Pickens County Registration & Elections Commission.
