“SC expands absentee voting for June primaries due to coronavirus pandemic”

Post and Courier:

The unexpected move came just hours after a state Supreme Court hearing over the same issue, as South Carolina Democrats argued that the state’s limited absentee voting law would force many voters to risk their health in order to vote next month.
