Update from Horry County Voters Registration and Elections Office

Due to the number of absentee ballots as a result of COVID-19, the short time frame between the primary and runoff, and the difficulties associated with returning a ballot to Conway in midsummer, the Horry County Voters Registration and Elections Office announced that every polling place has been designated as an extension absentee office for tomorrow’s runoff election. 

This means:

  • Any voter who has an absentee-by-mail ballot can return the ballot to any polling place in Horry County by 7:00 p.m.
  • Any voter that requested an absentee ballot, but did not receive it, can go to their designated polling place and cast a provisional ballot that will count as long as the absentee ballot is not returned.

Voters can find their polling place and get a list of all polling places in the county at For questions, call the Voters Registration and Elections Office at (843) 915-5440.
