How to inform you of the death of a loved one and cancel their voting mail and registration?

Contact your state or county, because certain states receive notification from other state agencies while other's require notification from family. 
 
The contact info for each state is available here: https://www.eac.gov/voters/election-day-contact-information/

I am temporarily living in another country. My address was incorrectly changed to WA state because we have mail shipping through WA. How do I change my address without changing my voting state? It is incorrectly showing WA state instead of SC.

Please reach out to the county elections office in the state you were registered in and still want to be registered in and tell them what happened. It sounds like South Carolina is the correct state so I did a quick search on https://www.scvotes.org/ for a contact number for the South Carolina Election Commission and I found this number: Main: (803) 734-9060.
