U.S. Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Burr's Petition for the South Carolina Election Commission: South Carolina's Witness Requirement on Absentee Ballots is Here to Stay -
On October 5th, the Supreme Court reinstated the requirement that South Carolina's absentee ballots must be accompanied by a witness's signature in this year's General Election. Under the law, voters returning mail-in ballots swear an oath printed on the return envelope that confirms they are eligible to vote and that the ballot inside is theirs. The oath has to be witnessed by another person with the witness's signature and address below the voter's.
