The Provisional Vote Count will take place on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. and Canvass will be held in the Columbus County Board of Elections office at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, November 16, 2018. 

Absentee voting by mail is available. Requests for an absentee ballot must be made on an absentee request form (available on the State Board of Elections website, at the county board of elections office and where one-stop early voting is offered), and must be received in the Columbus County Board of Elections office or any one-stop early voting site by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 30, 2018.  Absentee voting requires the voter to complete an application on the return envelope that must be witnessed by two qualified persons or a notary public. Completed absentee ballots must be returned to the Columbus County Board of Elections by 5:00 p.m. on Election Day (ballots received by mail after this time will be considered timely if they are received within three business days and postmarked on or before Election Day). Voters may receive assistance voting a mail-in absentee ballot from a qualified person of their choice. If the voter lives in a facility such as a nursing home, and the voter’s near relative or legal guardian is not available, the voter or the facility may arrange to have the county board of elections schedule a visit by a Multi-partisan Assistance Team to provide assistance and serve as witnesses. 

All persons who are registered to vote with the Columbus County Board of Elections may vote in this election. Persons who are not already registered to vote in the county must register by Friday, October 12, 2018 to be eligible to vote in this election. Voters who are not registered in Columbus County by the deadline may register and vote during one stop early voting only, and will be required to provide documentation of their identity and residence.  Voters who wish to change party affiliation or who have changed, name or address must do so by the registration deadline.  Voters who fail to timely make a change in name or address in the county must update the information when presenting to vote, and may be required to vote a provisional ballot.   

Voters voting in person are entitled to assistance by an election official, or, if assistance is needed due to disability or illiteracy, by a qualified person of their choice. Voting sites are accessible to all voters.  Curbside voting is available for voters who are not able to enter voting sites.

Buffer Zones:  At the Precincts on Election Day and at the One-stop voting site, buffer zones will be clearly marked off with yellow caution tape (50 ft from the main entrance of voting place entrance).  Only individuals arriving for purpose of voting or an individual filing a challenge may enter this area.  There shall be no campaigning or Electioneering inside the buffer zone area nor should anyone impede a voter’s access into this area.  Precinct officials will designate an area on the premises where campaigning and electioneering will be allowed. 

Persons with questions about registration, polling places, early voting, absentee ballots, a Multi-partisan Assistance Team visit to a facility, or other election matters may call the Columbus Board of Elections Office at (910)640-6609.
