The South Carolina primary is the fourth Presidential primary contest held in the nation. It traditionally takes place one week after the Nevada caucuses and marks the second time voters cast ballots for individual candidates. South Carolina will send 54 pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention which will be proportionally allocated among the candidates based off the percentage of votes they received. 

Polls are open between 7 AM to 7 PM EST on Saturday, February 29th, 2020. South Carolina has an open primary, so anyone registered to vote, regardless of political affiliation, is eligible to participate. Voters may also cast an absentee ballot if they are able to provide a valid reason why they are unable to vote on the day of the primary. A candidate must receive 15% or more of the vote in order to be considered a viable candidate and be awarded delegates. 

South Carolina is the first state voting that has a large percentage of African American voters, which is a major constituency in the Democratic Party.
