Due to COVID19 restrictions our June Meeting is POSTPONED to October 7

While we were hopeful that we would be able to have a regular meeting prior to summer commencing, it appears that restrictions on capacity at venues makes that too difficult at this time. GBRC does not usually meet in the summer months so we want to wish everyone a wonderful summer break! Lastly, please do not forget to vote on June 9th!

Please see the following information regarding the two options for voting in the June 9th 2020 Statewide Primaries and Runoffs from SCVotes.org:

      • Cotton swabs for making selections on the touchscreen.
    • Check-in stations and voting equipment will be spaced at least six feet apart.
  • Some polling places will be relocated or consolidated due to the pandemic.  Some facilities have declined to be used, and some poll managers have declined to serve.
