COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - More than 3 million people are now registered to vote in South Carolina with the deadline to get on the books looming.

Saturday is the deadline to register for next month’s state primaries.

The South Carolina Election Commission reports that, as of May 5, there were just over 3 million registered voters in the state. That’s almost 77 percent of the voting-age population. In 1990 only about 53 percent of the voting age population registered.

There’s still time to register for next month’s primaries. Prospective voters can download a voter registration form at www.scVOTES.org .

Completed forms should be returned to the county voter registration office. If sent by mail, it must be postmarked May 14. If sent by fax or email, it must be received on Saturday.
