The Charleston County Board of Elections and Voter Registration is working to mail out replacement mail-in ballots to voters living in St. Andrews Districts 3, 4, and 28. Incorrect ballots affecting County Council seats in District 6 and 7 were mailed to 1,324 voters.
It did NOT affect any other contested races on those ballots. Voters living in St. Andrews Districts 3, 4 and 28 should expect to receive their replacement ballot in three to five business days. Voters should only mail back the replacement ballot (it will have a purple stripe on the envelope).
In addition, 225 people who voted in-person absentee also received the wrong ballot for Council Districts 6 and 7. Some voters did not have the opportunity to vote for the Charleston County Council candidate representing their district, and others were able to cast a vote for a candidate outside of their district. State law does not allow for changes to those ballots and those votes will count.
County Council District 6:
By Mail: 652 voters affected
In-Person: 49 voters without the County Council 6 race on their ballot
28 voters that did receive ballots in the County Council 6 race, but should not have
County Council District 7:
By Mail: 672 voters affected
In-Person: 148 voters affected
This was brought to our attention by a citizen who realized there may have been an issue with their mail-in ballot. Charleston County Board of Elections Commission has notified all of the Charleston County Council candidates who are affected, and has contacted both the Democratic and Republican party chairs.
