WEDNESDAY, JULY' ?, 1022.
ENROLL NOW FOR ELECTION.
All Democrats in South Carolina,
lie th men and women, must enroll
la tho very near future for the Dem
ocratic primary this summer, or they
will not ho allowed to vote.
This fact should bo borne in mind
by all, especially by tho women, who
may bo laboring under the impres
sion that tho possession of a registra
tion certiilcate will entitled them to
a vote in the primaries, which is, of
course, correct, provided other steps
aro taken incident to the privilege of
casting a ballot. No one can vote in
tho primary election whose name is
not ou ono of the club rolls in the
county In which he or she resides.
Yet the fact that one has gotten his
or her name on a club roll will not
give tho privilege of casting a ballot
imless such person ls in possession of
a registration certificate. And vice
versa. The possession of a registra
tion certificate will not get any one
a vote without the name being pro
perly enrolled on some club's list of
voters. See that you are In possession
of a registration certificate and also
that your name is on some club roll.
The timo ls growing short. The
club lists will be closed after the 25th
of this month, and after that time it
will bo impossible to put ono's self
in position to cast a ballot lu the Au
gust and September primaries.
(?et yourself ready to vote!
