Beaufort County will only have a Republican Party Primary on June 9, 2020.  There will not be a Democratic Party Primary in Beaufort County.  Candidates seeking nominations in the Democratic Party does not have any opposition, therefore a Democratic Primary is not necessary.  Voters are reminded South Carolina is an “Open Primary” State and qualified voters may participate in any political party’s primary.  Voters requesting a Democratic ballot for the June Primary will not receive one.  However, if that voter now wishes to participate in the Republican Party Primary, the voter must contact the Voter Registration and Elections Office to amend his original request.
