How can I register to vote or update my voter registration information in Newberry County?
If you are 18 years old, a US Citizen, legal resident of Newberry County, with no felony convictions for which you are currently serving a sentence, and you are not declared mentally incompetent by a court of law, then you can register to vote by presenting proper identification, (driver's license reflecting a local residence address is acceptable) to the Voter Registration Office which is located at 1872 Wilson Rd.
You may use either of the following methods:
- Requires Current (updated) S.C. Driver's License or D.M.V. ID
- If you have moved, you must first update your address
- Your application will be processed in hours (during normal office hours)
Online applications must be submitted on or before the deadline to be valid for any specific election, 30 days prior to Election Day. Online voter registration does not "turn off" at the deadline. Applications submitted after the deadline will be processed, but will not be valid for that particular election.

It is also possible to register by mail on a form available throughout the County from various civic organizations, or mailed by Voter Registration.

Once a person is registered to vote, they do not have to re-register unless they move or have been convicted of a felony. In these cases, it may be necessary to start over and register to vote as if a new voter. Duplicate cards are available upon request if one is lost or misplace.
