York County elections office open Saturdays for absentee voting, photo IDs

York County voters who want to vote absentee or get a photo ID, but can’t make it to the elections office in York during the week now have another option – Saturdays.

The county Voter Registration and Elections office will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. the next two Saturdays – Oct. 25 and Nov. 1 – for absentee voting in person and voter photo IDs.

Normal office hours for the elections office, at 13 S. Congress St., are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

When voting in person – including casting an absentee ballot – voters will be asked to show one of the following current and valid photo IDs:

• A South Carolina driver’s license



• An S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles ID card



• An S.C. voter registration card, with photo



• A federal military ID



• A U.S. passport



Voters who can’t obtain a photo ID before the Nov. 4 Election Day should bring their paper voter registration card to their polling place. These voters can sign an affidavit swearing to their reason for not being able to get a photo ID, and then cast a provisional ballot.
