COLUMBIA, S.C. (October 8, 2018) – Postcards are being mailed to South Carolina residents who are most likely eligible to vote but have not yet registered. These postcards are being sent today to approximately 950,000 South Carolina residents, encouraging them to register by October 17th so they can vote in the 2018 General Election.
The mailing was planned as part of South Carolina’s recent membership in the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). ERIC is an organization operated by member states which uses motor vehicle, voter registration, and Social Security Administration data to improve the accuracy of voter registration lists. To join, member states are required to reach out by mail to residents who are likely eligible but not registered letting them know how and when to register to vote.
