Absentee voting information
Did you know that all South Dakotans are eligible to vote by mailing an absentee ballot? It’s the most convenient way to vote, and you can get started now!
- Make sure you’re registered to vote—check your voter registration status here. If you’re not registered, you have until October 22 to register to vote.
- Download and print the absentee ballot application.
- Fill out the application and mail to your County Auditor.
Once your County Auditor receives your application, they will send you a paper absentee ballot. Then you complete the ballot, and mail it back. That’s it!
