Beaufort County’s Board of Voter Registration and Elections will take necessary actions to inform voters of the changes and precinct locations.
The Redistricting process started with the release of the census date after South Carolina reviewed it. This occurred on October 27 at USC Beaufort as the state presented the data during an open meeting. On Monday, Nov. 8, the County Council approved the timeline understating that the normal 9-month process was now four months to meet the State of South Carolina requirements.
From November 24 through December 13, the County held three public meetings and a redistricting website compete with informational videos, key documents, and an interactive map. The public could also submit comments through the website.
“The feedback was tremendous and helped the County staff to focus on neighborhoods street by street and make sure we get this right,” Beaufort County Director of Mapping and Applications Dan Morgan said in a release. “We feel we were able to preserve the one person, one vote yet improve the grouping of communities of interests with the help of the public.”
