Several York County polling places have moved or will be moving before two local elections on June 20, said Beth Covington with the York County Board of Voter Registration and Elections.
Covington also announced Monday that the voter registration office will host several days of absentee voting this week.
Absentee voting is available for the special election for South Carolina’s 5th Congressional seat and for S.C. House Seat 48. Sample ballots are available at the link here.
