South Carolina Makes Ballot Access Difficult

Originally posted at on May 21, 2012

I called the South Carolina Elections Commission this morning (803-734-9060) and asked if write-ins are allowed for federal Senators and House of Representatives. The woman who answered the phone said that write-ins are not allowed during the primaries, but they ARE allowed during the general election! So apparently, as long as you’re electable, you can run as a write-in.

South Carolina is among the top two states having the most difficult independent ballot access requirements in the nation.
