The LowCountry 9/12, under the direction of Bonnie Meriam, has been registering voters every Saturday in September at the Summerville Farmers Market. Because the area has a large number of people moving here from “away,” there has been a good response.
We have also been able to help some who changed their voter registration when they got South Carolina driver’s licenses, but hadn’t received their new card with a polling place yet.
“It’s been a good program,” Bonnie said. About 10 volunteers have helped with registration.
