Clarendon County’s top Republican has been selected as one of the state’s Electoral College members.
Moye Graham will represent Clarendon County and the 6th Congressional District as one of nine members of the Electoral College who will cast their votes as part of the 538-member national Electoral College following the Nov. 8 general election.
Moye and his fellow Electoral College members were selected by the S.C. Republican Party’s State Executive Committee. Joining Graham are Glenn McCall of York County and Matt Moore of Lexington County, selected statewide; Terry Hardesty of Berkeley County, 1st Congressional District; Jim Ulmer of Orangeburg County, 2nd Congressional District; Brenda Bedenbaugh of Saluda County, 3rd Congressional District; Bill Conley of Spartanburg County, 5th Congressional District; and Jerry Rovner of Georgetown County, 7th Congressional District.
“Serving on the Electoral College is among the highest honors any citizen can ever receive,” said SCGOP Executive Director Hope Walker. “These nine individuals have given countless hours of service to our state and nation, and were rightly honored by their peers with appointments to the Electoral College.”
This is not Graham’s first assignment from the committee in national political affairs. He was selected as a delegate for the National Republican Convention, which he attended in July. He wrote about his experiences for The Manning Times and manninglive.com.
He has also been the chairman for the 6th Congressional District and received the James B. Edwards Award in 2014 during the GOP’s Silver Elephant Banquet at the Columbia Hilton. The award, which was presented by state GOP Chairman Matt Moore, who is also a member of this year’s Electoral College, is named after the first Republican governor elected since Reconstruction. Edwards was elected to office in 1981 during a special statewide election.

    Electors in SC do not represent congressional districts.
    South Carolina has a state winner-take-all law for awarding electoral votes.
    Electors vote for the statewide winner.

    It will be a pleasure to serve on South Carolina’s portion of the Electoral College with Mr. Mote Graham and the others should the people of South Carolina see fit to elect Mr. Donald Trump as President of the United States.
    The South Carolina Republican Party’s Executive Committee members chose nine South Carolinians to represent the party in the Electoral College. The executive committeeman and committeewomen caucused according to their county’s Congressional district makeup and nominated residents of that district as candidates for elector. The entire body then reconvened and nominated candidates from throughout the state as candidates for statewide elector. The Executive Committee then cast their votes for one elector from each Congressional district and for two statewide candidates for elector. These electors who were chosen reflect the makeup of our state’s Congressional delegation: one member from each district, as we have one member of the U.S. House of Representatives from each Congressional district, and two at-large statewide members as we have two U.S. Senators who are elected statewide. South Carolina has nine members of her Congressional delegation, and therefore we have nine members of the Electoral College.

    I am very honored to have been chosen to represent the Sixth Congressional District of SC and Clarendon County. It is the most diverse and largest District in SC compromising all or parts of 17 SC Counties. From Charleston to Columbia to Florence to Hilton Head to Orangeburg to Manning and all in between. I have worked to achieve this for years and still amazed at the support I have received to make this possible. Thank you all.
