Early Voting in South Carolina’s Lowcountry Opens Today


Early voting for a crucial South Carolina House seat begins today, with two candidates from the Lowcountry vying to fill the vacancy. Eduardo Curry II, a community advocate, and Tiffany Spann-Wilder, a former Charleston County judge, both Democrats, are running to represent District 109, which includes parts of Charleston and Dorchester counties.

The seat opened up after then-Rep. Deon Tedder was elected to State Senate District 42 in a special run-off election last November. The primary for this special election is set for January 30, with early voting starting on January 16 and concluding on January 26. Registered voters in the district can vote early at designated locations in their county, similar to voting on Election Day, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.

Dorchester County residents can cast their early votes at Christ Community Lutheran Church, located at 8315 Dorchester Road in North Charleston. In Charleston County, early voting is available at the Charleston County Board of Voter Registration & Elections Headquarters at 4340 Corporate Road in North Charleston.

No Republican candidates have entered the race for this special election, which is scheduled for April 2.
