18 more days Tip for using the voting machines: The touch screens on the Greenville County voting machines are very old. Put a bit of lotion on your hands before you leave the house. Dry skin does not make a good contact with the screen. If you have trouble getting the touch screens to respond, ask for another machine.
17 more days If you don't like any of the candidates running for office, you have an option. You can write in the name of someone you want to vote for EXCEPT for president. SC is one of 9 states that simply does not allow write in candidates for president. To write in a candidate, tap the write in box and the screen becomes a key board. Type in the name and click ok.

A vote "No" will keep in place the current situation-no Sunday alcohol sales in the county.
Note that some cities in the county, Greenville is one example, already allow Sunday alcohol sales. This vote does not impact their ability to continue to allow Sunday alcohol sales.
The language in the referendum mentions 24 hour permits. This is the mechanism that a business will use if the referendum passes. Most businesses who want to sell alcohol on Sunday will purchase a permit for each Sunday in the year.
