You must include your South Carolina driver's license number or South Carolina state ID number, and your full social security number with your online voter registration application.
Box 6 - ID Number: South Carolina requires you to provide your full social security number. This is for internal purposes only. Your social security number will not appear on any public record and will not be released to any unauthorized individual.
Box 7 - Choice of Party: You do not have to register with a party to take part in that party’s primary election, caucus, or convention.
Box 8 - Race or Ethnic Group: This information is required, but your voter registration form will not be rejected if you leave this blank.
Print, date, and sign the form. If you do not have a printer, you can print the form out at any local library. If you do not have a stamp, you can buy one from any grocery store: just ask the cashier to sell you one.
