The General Election for Federal, State and County officers, Constitutional Amendment Questions, local candidates and questions will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2010.

Any person wishing to register to vote in this election must do so no later than October 2. In addition to our normal office hours of Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., the office of the Pickens County Registration & Elections Commission will be open from 8:00 a.m. to Noon on Saturday, October 2 to accommodate citizens who want to register to vote or update their address.

At 9:00 a.m. on election day the Pickens County Registration & Elections Commission will begin its examination of the absentee ballot return envelopes at their office at 222 McDaniel Avenue Pickens, SC 29671.

On Friday, November 5, at 9:00am the Pickens County Board of Canvassers will hold a hearing to determine the validity of all provisional ballots cast in these elections. This hearing will be held in the County Council Chambers at 222 McDaniel Avenue Pickens, SC 29671.

The following Constitutional Amendment Questions will be placed on the ballot:

Amendment 1 Must Article I of the Constitution of this State, relating to the declaration of rights under the state’s constitution, be amended by adding Section 25 so as to provide that hunting and fishing are valuable parts of the state’s heritage, important for conservation, and a protected means of managing nonthreatened wildlife; to provide that the citizens of South Carolina shall have the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife traditionally pursued, subject to laws and regulations promoting sound wildlife conservation and management as prescribed by the General Assembly; and to specify that this section must not be construed to abrogate any private property rights, existing state laws or regulations, or the state’s sovereignty over its natural resources?

Explanation A ‘Yes’ vote will make it a constitutional right for citizens to hunt and fish and will permit the State to legally provide for proper wildlife management and the protection of private property rights.

Amendment 2 Must Article II of the Constitution of this State, relating to the right of suffrage, be amended by adding Section 12 so as to provide that the fundamental right of an individual to vote by secret ballot is guaranteed for a designation, a selection, or an authorization for employee representation by a labor organization?

Explanation A ‘Yes’ vote will give employees the constitutional right to vote by secret ballot when they are voting on whether to be represented by a labor union.

Amendment 3 Must Section 36(A), Article III of the Constitution of this State be amended so as to increase from three to five percent in increments of one-half of one percent over four fiscal years the amount of state general fund revenue in the latest completed fiscal year required to be held in the General Reserve Fund?

Explanation A ‘Yes’ vote will increase the amount of money state government must keep in the General Reserve Fund (its “rainy day” fund) from 3% of the previous year’s revenue to 5% of the previous year’s revenue.

Amendment 4 Must Section 36(B), Article III of the Constitution of this State be amended so as to provide that monies from the Capital Reserve Fund first must be used, to the extent necessary, to fully replenish the applicable percentage amount in the General Reserve Fund?

Explanation A ‘Yes’ vote will require that the Capital Reserve Fund’s first priority is to replenish the State’s General Reserve Fund (its “rainy day” fund) instead of serving to offset midyear budget cuts at state agencies.

The following precincts and polling places will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.:
