Register to vote in the Nov. 5 election

Register to vote in the Nov. 5 election Oct. 21 is the deadline for voter registration for the Nov. 5 election. If you are a United States citizen age 18 or older on the next election day, a resident of South Dakota, not judged mentally incompetent by a court of law, or under a sentence of imprisonment for a felony conviction, you may register to vote.

Voter registration locations are: the county auditor's office; city finance office; driver's license station; military recruitment offices; public assistance agencies providing food stamps, TANF or WIC; Department of Human Services which provide assistance to the disabled; and mail-in registration with forms from the county auditor's office or the Secretary of State's Web site at

People use the concern of not wanting to be called for jury duty as their reason for not registering to vote. If you have a driver's license, you are

already a candidate for being selected for jury duty so registering to vote won't be a factor.
