The Charleston County Board of Elections & Voter Registration (BEVR) once again partnered with the South Carolina Stingrays to assist Charleston County Public Library's (CCPL) Free & Fresh program.
On Saturday, Nov. 5, the Stingrays donned specialty "Get Out and Vote" jerseys while skating to a 4-2 victory over the Atlanta Gladiators. Those jerseys were then auctioned off, garnering $3,500 in funding for the library's community fridge program.
The night also served as a celebration of local poll workers while encouraging Charleston County residents to vote in the 2022 General Election. Turnout for the midterm surpassed 58% in the county, which was several percentage points higher than the state's average of about 51%.
Additionally, in June, the Stingrays joined our Adopt a Polling Location initiative. Those participants donated their pay for working the election back to the library to support the free food project.
In total, BEVR and the Stingrays raised $5,260 throughout 2022 for CCPL's Free & Fresh program.
We are proud of this fantastic achievement and appreciate our shared goal of serving Charleston County residents. BEVR is looking forward to continuing this wonderful partnership in 2023.

The Charleston County Board of Elections and Voter Registration and Frothy Beard Brewing Company are coming together for National Voter Registration Day!
The day, slated for Tuesday, Sept. 20 in 2022, aims to register new voters and helps ensure those who are eligible to vote are prepared for the upcoming General Election in November.

The Charleston County Board Of Elections & Voter Registration's Voter Registration Citizen Communication Team has been recognized for its efforts to inform voters. The team, which includes Dakota Blitch, Maybell Brown, Barbara Kennedy, Matthew Kibbey and Ben Leeson, was the recipient of a Charleston County Team Award. This comes after the group utilized postcards to notify the public of important district changes and the subsequent impacts to voters. By using an efficient method to share this information, costs to the county were ultimately reduced by $90,000. The team members collaborated to clearly share details displayed on the postcards and proofed this data with GIS mapping information.
