EAC Commissioner Donetta Davidson Visits South Carolina

Posted on: Wed, 07/26/2006 - 15:08 By: jdebney

U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) board member Donetta Davidson spent Tuesday, June 13, 2006, in South Carolina observing the statewide primary voting process. Davidson visited several polling places, talked with poll workers, visited the Richland County Election Commission, and spent the evening at the State Election Commission watching the results reporting process.

Davidson observed the ease of voting on the state's new, electronic voting terminals and showed interest in the availability of the audio ballot in each precinct. She spoke with poll managers about turnout and their experiences in managing their polling place. Davidson was pleased to see the voting rights poster prominently displayed in each precinct, as is required by federal law. She also visited the Richland County Election Commission and met with Director Mike Cinnamon and other county staff to observe the process of opening absentee ballots. After getting a taste of the primary process in South Carolina, Davidson got another taste of South Carolina when she tried grits for the first time. By all accounts, she loved them.

May is Voter Education Month

Posted on: Wed, 07/26/2006 - 14:55 By: jdebney

As part of the South Carolina’s Help America Vote Act (HAVA) State Plan, the South Carolina Election Commission on May 3, 2006, announced May as Voter Education Month. Governor Mark Sanford signed a proclamation and the SC General Assembly passed a joint resolution making the declaration official. (see below)

Representatives attending the Statehouse event included individuals who will vote on their own for the first time – thanks to the accessibility provided by the new, ADA compliant, uniform voting system. Other attendees included Senator Larry Martin and Representative John Scott, both speaking on behalf of the legislative leadership who helped to make South Carolina a national leader in the election process.

In a state with over 2 million eligible voters, more than 600,000 people are not registered. Voter Education Month will include the SC Votes Tour, local events and demonstrations all aimed at encouraging everyone to vote.
