It is highly recommend that voters wear a mask to protect themselves and for the safety of all voters and election workers while casting their ballots in-person. Voters will be provided with a single, one-time-use cotton swab to make ballot choices on the Ballot Marking Devices. 

Our election workers will be wearing face masks/shields and gloves, using sneeze guards & cleaning voting equipment and tables to limit the spread of COVID-19.  Staying Safe When Voting - What is Being Done to Protect Voters and Workers? (PDF)

  • When: Friday, November 6, 2020 at 10:00 am

    York County Government Center
    6 S Congress St, Room 3801
    York, SC 29745

    This hearing is open to the public.


Poll managers, any voter, and any qualified watcher may challenge the vote of a person who may be known or suspected not to be a qualified voter. A challenge may also be made if you have good reason to believe the person has already voted or has become disqualified for any cause. Challenges of ballots cast in person in the absentee precinct and at the polling place on election day must be made prior to the voter casting the ballot. No challenges can be made after that time. All challenges must be addressed to poll managers and not directly to voters. Challenges of absentee by mail ballots must be made prior to separating the ballot from absentee return envelope, which can begin as early as 9:00 a.m. on the day preceding the election. Challenges in the absentee precinct are very rare because the voter has the opportunity to make address changes or otherwise correct his voting record with election officials before casting an absentee ballot. If a challenged voter casts a provisional ballot, the challenger must appear or produce evidence at the provisional ballot hearing to sustain the challenge; otherwise, the ballot will be counted.

See S.C. Code sections 7-13-810 and 7-13-830.
