April AlvarezOct 21, 2016

With a heated general election only a few weeks away, SC elections officials said they have "elevated concerns" about security at polling places, but they still expect a civil and non-violent election day.

A processing issue at post offices in some areas of Hays County is believed to have led to some completed ballots-by-mail to be returned to residents, according to the Hays County Elections Office. But, this can be done at the voting location, either the County Clerk's Office or polling station. All accepted mail ballots are included in election results.

However, anyone requesting an advanced ballot must provide photo identification.
