Precincts


The Clarendon County Democratic Party is the local county affiliate of the South Carolina Democratic Party (SCDP). There are currently 26 precincts in the county.

In the U.S., a precinct is generally the lowest-level governmentally-related division. For purposes of conducting elections, a city or county is typically subdivided into precincts. Each precinct has a specific location where its residents go to vote. Sometimes several precincts may use the same polling station.

Individuals, known by various titles such as precinct committeeman or precinct captain, are elected to represent precinct residents in every level of party operations. One of their duties is to encourage people to vote. Usually, precincts normally have at least two such individuals, one for each major political party.
