What you need to know about the Democratic Primary Election

The Democratic Presidential Preference Primary will be held on Saturday, Feb. 29. From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Absentee voting in person is available for voters who meet one of 16 very broad criteria. Everyone over 65 is eligible to vote early. Absentee voting in person is at County Square, 301 University Ridge, Greenville. Enter where the flags are. Voting hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended hours on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and February 27 when voting will remain open to 7 p.m.

Because the election is on a Saturday, schools and some other facilities, which are typical voting locations, are closed. Alternate locations have been selected and, in some cases, voting precincts have been consolidated. Check your voting location here in advance.
