South Carolina 2017 Ballot

Statewide and Local Sample Ballots In 2017

Sample ballots are specific to a given election district. They contain partisan and nonpartisan offices that may appear on a particular election's ballot. The Sample Ballot provides the order the contests and candidates will appear on the ballot. Most towns have only one sample ballot. However, there may be some municipalities with multiple ballots based on specific local races for an elected position.

Although sample ballots, in most states, are sent to voters in the mail, we would advise you contact your local election office for details on when you should expect to receive one in the mail.

    South Carolina State House of Rep Dist 48 - District 48

    With S.C. Rep. Ralph Norman announcing his intention to resign from the State House of Representatives to run for Congress - (assuming the seat he wants opens up) it didn't take long for candidates to start stepping forward in a hypothetical race to replace him.

    Norman has represented uber-wealthy, staunchly Republican S.C. House District 48 (map) twice - serving one term from 2005-2006 and then representing the district again beginning in November 2009.

    South Carolina State House of Representatives District 48 - District 70

    The death of S.C. Rep. Joe Neal of Hopkins, S.C. means the already cash-strapped S.C. Election Commission (SCEC) will be required by law to hold yet another special election.

    According to the SCEC, filing for this seat will officially open at noon on March 3 and close at noon on March 13. Partisan primary elections will be held on May 2 with any necessary runoffs scheduled for May 16. The special election itself will be held on June 20.
