South Carolina May Standardize Local Election Dates
A legislative panel is considering a bill to standardize local election dates.
The legislation would require all local elections to be held on one of three specific days in odd-numbered years.
These dates would fall in March, July, or November.
The purpose of the bill is to eliminate confusion caused by varying election dates across the state.
The bill passed the House earlier this year and will be considered in the Senate as early as next January when Legislature comes back into session.
