What are the requirements to be eligible to vote in South Carolina state and local elections?

In order to vote under South Carolina law, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least eighteen (18) years of age on Election Day, and a resident of South Carolina, as well as a resident of the county and precinct in which you intend to vote. If you have been convicted of a felony or a crime relating to election laws, you cannot register to vote unless you have served your entire sentence (including probation and parole), or have received a pardon for your conviction. You also cannot register to vote in the state of South Carolina if you have been declared mentally incompetent by a court, or if you are incarcerated due to a criminal conviction.
