South Carolina Medical Cannabis Voter Guide, 2020 Primary Election, June 9
South Carolina Medical Cannabis Voter Guide 2020 Primary Election June 9
Tuesday, June 9 is Primary Election Day for the South Carolina Legislature. This year’s elections will be critical for determining whether South Carolina will finally enact a compassionate medical cannabis law in 2021.
We’ve put together a voter guide on where primary candidates stand on medical cannabis. It includes responses to the South Carolina Compassionate Care Alliance’s (SCCCA) candidate questionnaire, along with whether incumbents cosponsored medical cannabis bills, past committee votes, and candidates’ public comments on the issue.
If you’re a registered voter, you can look up your state legislative districts and precinct location here. (After you fill in your information, the second section will be your Voting Districts — your “SC Senate District” and “SC House District.”)
You can vote in either party’s primary on June 9: South Carolina does not have registration by party. (Only the Democrat and Republican parties have competitive primaries on June 9.)
After you check out our House and Senate voter guides and decide who to support, please spread the word. If you speak to a candidate about medical cannabis and get new information that we have not included, let us know at Karen@mpp.org.
State races have been so close some have tied and were decided by a coin toss. Don’t miss out on this chance to determine who represents you in Columbia. You may also wish to volunteer for or contribute to candidates you are enthusiastic about.
