From staff reports

The Beaufort County Democratic Party’s Northern Beaufort County Headquarters will open, or more accurately, re-open, on Sunday, June 14, at 605 Carteret Street in Beaufort.

The Headquarters’ opening, from 2 to 5 p.m., will feature three candidates running for public office in Northern Beaufort County: Richard Hricik, running for the South Carolina Senate, District 43 (covering Lady’s Island, St. Helena, and Port Royal precincts plus one Mossy Oaks precinct); Nathan Campbell, running for South Carolina Senate, District 46 (covering Beaufort precincts and most Burton precincts); and Barb Nash, running for South Carolina House of Representatives, District 124 (covering all of Lady’s Island, Beaufort, Mossy Oaks and Port Royal precincts, plus two St. Helena and two Burton precincts).

All are welcome to meet the candidates, tour the Headquarters’ office (with masks and social distancing observed), pick up candidates’ campaign material, and sign up to volunteer for the summer and fall campaign.

The Northern Beaufort County Headquarters opened briefly in March before the pandemic shut South Carolina down. Now with the state carefully re-opening, the headquarters office, observing CDC and DHEC rules, will be open from 10 a.m. through 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Volunteers will work out of the headquarters to canvas voters, place get-out-the-vote calls, promote absentee mail-in voting, and write postcards for candidates in Beaufort County, South Carolina and throughout the United States.

The party is still seeking volunteers for two-person shifts from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call the Northern Beaufort County Democratic Headquarters at 843-940-9994.
