On May 16, the Governor signed Bill H This act amended Section of the South Carolina Code of Laws as it relates to the schedule of recording fees used in South Carolina. These fees will be effective beginning August 1, This will remove the current per page fees used for recordings, and instead create flat fees used to record the majority of documents. This amendment will affect the recording fees of all documents as well. It will also involve the creation of a separate recording fee for any deed relating to a title of interest in a vacation time sharing plan. If not titled this way the document will be rejected due to not meeting the recording requirements defined in the State Statute.
Due to this amendment the Horry County Register of Deeds schedule of fees has changed. As such we are posting the updated fee schedule as it will exist beginning at 8am on August 1st.

As community members, we all need to educate ourselves and others about the dangers of these drugs within our homes, our schools, and our communities. Democrats believe that strong laws and enforcement against unfair or deceptive business practices have the effect of weeding-out unsavory businesses, reducing unfair competition, curbing false advertising, and increasing transparency — in turn strengthening the profitability of businesses that treat their customers fairly and honestly.
From phishing schemes, identity theft, and unscrupulous business practices — Horry County Democrats will work together towards supporting legislation regarding the prevention of crimes against consumers and for the protection of our citizens. The unemployment rate in Horry County is consistently higher than the state and national average.
The majority of work in Horry County revolves around the tourism industry and health care facility jobs. Most other work is in retail stores and restaurants which rely on low-paid seasonal or part-time workers. The county needs to entice more varying businesses to the area for providing better jobs to its citizens. Democrats support economic development beyond tourism that emphasizes clean industries and high-tech businesses which can create higher-paying, year-round jobs for our county residents. We believe that entrenched poverty is best tackled by the government in partnership with all of the community members.
Rapid growth and expanding tourism have placed heavy burdens on our roads and bridges. Hundreds of new housing developments have put thousands more cars and trucks on our already busy roads. In a county about the size of Rhode Island, having a car — or access to one — is most often the only way to get to work, appointments, school, or stores. As we invest millions to attract new businesses and create more jobs, Democrats believe that equal attention must be given to expanding access to low-cost public transportation to help people compete for these new opportunities.
While boating can also be a viable means of traveling within the county via the Intracoastal Waterway, our residents still need further options for affordable transportation. Many parts of our county still severely lack any public transportation at all, and most of the existing roadways do not allow for safe pedestrian traffic.

While Horry County continues to grow each year, we need to work on fixing this. Residents need to be encouraged to be active and walk and bike more, not less. The brisk rate of development in Horry County means that all area citizens need to be active and aware about what is being done to maintain and improve the infrastructure of our county.
Horry County Council members have been debating ways to find more money for building and maintaining the roads and making the necessary stormwater system improvements.

Many residents feel that the area is being over-developed too quickly. We may see several hundred thousand new residents come into the county in the coming years. This not only adds to traffic woes, but to concerns about the issue of increased crime. This highlights the need for more municipal and county police officers to keep up with crime response times and solving cases. The county and many local municipalities struggle to keep police and first responder forces at full staff. We, as Democrats, support fully funding budgets to offer competitive salaries to recruit, train, and support these essential public servants.
Flooding in area neighborhoods is also of great concern. Horry County needs to provide for improved infrastructure to manage the flooding and hold developers and builders accountable for poor planning as well. The changing climate has already caused observable damage to our coastal areas.
Our county will need to brace for increasing floods, further beach erosion, stronger storms, and more dangerous hurricanes. Democrats wish to work together to preserve the integrity of public officials and institutions — to remove governmental corruption, conflicts of interest, and acts of impropriety. We support the public disclosure of the financial and employment history of public officials, and that of their immediate family members, to ensure that the public is kept informed about those who are in office to represent their best interests.
We know that to prevent conflict of interest and coercion in government, a fully informed voter is the best protection. It has been a national shame to see a select few corporations and billionaires working behind the scenes to tip the balance of political power in their favor. Our campaign finance system needs to be reformed and corrected, with undisclosed dark money removed from politics.
Through incorporating public support, teamwork, and grassroots efforts we can accomplish this together. Horry County Democrats believe that increasing access to the ballot will strengthen our society, and that any efforts to restrict voting access only weakens our democracy.
We are determined to fight for restoring, expanding, and protecting voting rights across South Carolina. For example, a person who does not have a birth certificate, or who has religious objections to being photographed, may vote without a Photo ID. Bring your non-photo voter registration card with you to the polls. When a citizen has made full restitution to society, he or she can register to vote. Celebrate your right as an American citizen and be a full participant in our democracy.
All citizens should be confident that their votes are counted correctly and that election equipment and results are accurate and accountable. The iVotronics machines used in SC were purchased second-hand in These machines are no longer actively manufactured, making repairs difficult or impossible. There are voting machine malfunctions during every election at more than one polling location in Horry County. This should be completely unacceptable. Horry Democrats are urging the South Carolina State Election Commission to undertake a transparent process to select and choose new equipment that produces an auditable paper trail.
We also support the Horry County Voters Registration and Election Commission effort to provide laptop computers in all county precincts for faster and smoother voter check-in on Election Day. Alongside College Democrats, who meet on campuses across the country, other young Democrats are also driving discussions and organizing on some of the most important issues facing youth today — college affordability, racial equality, campus sexual assault policies, access to health care, and tackling the threat of climate change. Young people have had new opportunities to become more active with county and state Democrats, and they are instrumental in helping to shape our party across the country for decades to come.
South Carolina ranks 1 in the nation for the number of women killed by men, and the killings are most often perpetrated via being shot with a gun. As Democrats, we advocate for stronger sensible gun control laws, stiffer penalties for abusers, and education through domestic violence prevention programs starting as early as middle school to help end the cycle of violence in families. Women in America are still consistently paid less for the same work as their male counterparts.
The high cost of child care adds undue burden to mothers, and for many single mothers, it is a constant struggle between raising children and the demands of working to supply an income to shelter and feed their families.
