Presidential primaries coming up in February

Abbeville County will join the rest of South Carolina next month in presenting the Presidential Preference Primaries, with Presidential candidates on the ballots.


"The Democratic Party Presidential Primary will be held Saturday, Feb. 3, 2024, with polls open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.," said Abbeville County voter registration and election director Randy Curtis.


Early voting will be Monday, January 22 through Friday, February 2, at the Abbeville County Complex at 903 W Greenwood Street.


Voting will be 8:30 until 6:00 Monday through the Saturday prior to the primary.


The last day to apply for an absentee by mail ballot is January 23.


The Republican Party Presidential Primary, meanwhile, will be on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024, with polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.


The early voting period will last from Monday, Feb. 12, through Feb. 22 at the Abbeville County Complex at 903 W Greenwood Street.


There will be no early voting on Sunday, Feb. 18, and Monday, Feb. 19, or Feb. 23.


The last day to apply for an absentee by mail ballot is Feb. 13, 2024.


The Complex will be closed on Sunday, Feb. 18, and Monday, Feb. 19.


Polling Locations for Election Day


"The state political parties requested counties to combine polling locations for the primaries since the parties bear the expense," Curtis said.


Combined polling locations include the following:


Abbeville 1, Abbeville 2, Abbeville 3, Abbeville 4, and Lebanon will vote at the Abbeville Administrative Complex, 903 West Greenwood Street.


Donalds and Due West precincts will vote at the Due West Fire Department, 13 Church Street, Abbeville, SC 29620.


Broadmouth and Halls Store precincts will vote at Calvary Baptist Church, 5551 Hwy 252 Ware Shoals.


One may vote in either Presidential preference primary, but not in both.


The Presidential primaries in South Carolina are among the early markers in the national campaign season - among the others are the Iowa Republican caucus on Monday, Jan. 15, and the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, Jan. 23.
