South Carolina's state government consists of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches. The governor is elected for a four-year term and may serve two consecutive terms. He heads the Executive branch (some officers of which are elected). The bicameral [[South Carolina General Assembly]] consists of the 46-member Senate and the 124-member House of Representatives. The two bodies meet in the [[South Carolina State House]]. The Judicial Branch consists of the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals, the Circuit Court, Family Court, and other divisions.

'''November 2, 2007''': Stephen Colbert will not be on the ballot for the South Carolina Democratic party's presidential primary. The host of Comedy Centrals "Colbert Report" had the application and $2,500 fee filed less than an hour before the deadline. Carol Fowler, chairwoman of the state Democratic party, said the party "really agonized over this because they really like him, they love his show and everyone thinks it's wonderful that he cares about us."<ref>[http://www.themoneytimes.com/news/20071102/colbert_wont_be_on_primary_ballot-id-1012499.html ''Colbert won't be on primary ballot'', The Money Times, Nov. 2, 2007]</ref>
* Initiative and Referendum Law
+
|-
** Currently there is no initiative or referendum available in South Carolina. An alternative is Legislative referendum which is possible in all states ([[http://iandrinstitute.org/New%20IRI%20Website%20Info/Drop%20Down%20Boxes/Requirements/Legislative%20Referendum%20States.pdf|click here for list]]), is when the state legislatures, an elected official, state appointed constitutional revision commission or other government agency or department submits propositions (constitutional amendments, statutes, bond issues, etc.) to the people for their approval or rejection. Every state requires that constitutional amendments proposed by the legislature be submitted to the citizenry via legislative referendum for approval or rejection. Legislative amendments (LA) are possible in South Carolina, and are constitutional amendments placed on the ballot by the legislature or governmental body. This includes constitutional bond issues and amendments proposed by a constitutional revision commission.
