South Carolina has over 250 statewide boards and commissions. These boards and commission provide important advisory, regulatory, and policy-making services as part of South Carolina’s government.

How do I get more information on boards and commissions in South Carolina? The S.C. Legislative Manual is updated annually and contains a complete listing of all boards and commissions – including term information, qualifications needed, and how members are elected or appointed.

How do I know which boards have vacancies? An Act was passed by the South Carolina General Assembly in 1998 delegating to the Secretary of State the duty of publicizing vacancies, expired terms, and those terms expiring within one year. Access the Secretary of State's Boards & Commissions searchable database by clicking here.

SC Governor Nikki Haley

Nikki R. Haley

Governor of South Carolina

Nikki Randhawa Haley was elected the 116th Governor of South Carolina on Tuesday, November 2, 2010.

One of the strongest fiscal conservatives in state government, Nikki was first elected to represent the 87th District in Lexington County in 2004, when, as a virtual unknown, she beat the longest serving state legislator in a Republican primary. In 2008, Representative Haley was sent back to the Statehouse with 83 percent of the vote – the highest percentage earned by any lawmaker facing a contested South Carolina election that year. She won the Republican Party nomination for governor on Tuesday, June 22, 2010.

Her time in Columbia has been marked by conservative leadership and an unwavering commitment to the taxpayers’ bottom line. She has fought wasteful spending at every turn, pushed for smaller, more efficient government, and led the fight for accountability and transparency that, before her arrival, was sorely lacking in the Legislature.
