The state of South Carolina has nine political parties qualified to enter candidates for primary and general elections.
The parties are: Democratic, Independence, United Citizens, Republican, Constitutional, Green, Libreratarian, Workers Family and Labor.
Each of these parties should have the right to select their nominee in a primary election open only to South Carolinians registered in that party. Primaries should not be decided by just any person registered to vote in South Carolina. That is decided in a general election, where all voters are eligible to vote for a candidate no matter the voter's party affiliation.
The members in each party should have the right to choose their nominee in a party primary without other party and independent voters interfering in the vote.
Never miss a local story.
The South Carolina legislature should move to correct this unfair situation. Contact your representative and senator and urge them to move the pending voter registration bill.
