Regular Commission Meetings
The Commission normally meets the first Tuesday of every month, except December, at 4:30 PM in the Office of the Pickens County Registration & Elections Commission. Special meetings may be called by the Chairperson, acting Chairperson, or majority of the Commission, but no special meetings shall be held unless all members and the public are notified 24 hours in advance of such meeting as stated in the SC Freedom of Information Act.
Each regular or special Commission meeting will have public comment period. This is an opportunity for citizens to come before the Commission with various issues. Citizens who wish to speak during the public comment period do not have to register or signup in advance. Each person is limited to 5-minutes of speaking time. Maximum total public comment time is 20 minutes.
Should any person, group, or organization want to speak about any matter or issue at a regular or special meeting of the Commission and believe they may need more than 5-minutes of speaking time, such person, group, or organization should submit a written request to the Executive Director to place such matter on the agenda for the meeting by 12:00 Noon at least seven (7) days prior to the date set for such meeting. The request should state the specific matter or issue to be discussed, who will be speaking, and the amount of time anticipated to discuss the issue.
