South Dakota Absentee Ballot Process

Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot. You must request an absentee ballot application from your County Election Official or fill out an absentee ballot request here. You will then be sent a paper absentee ballot to vote. Complete the ballot and return it to the County Election Official.

The County Election Official must receive your application no later than 5pm the day before the election.

If you are confined because of sickness or disability, you may apply in writing and obtain an absentee ballot by authorized messenger. The authorized messenger delivers the ballot from the County Election Official to the qualified voter and then delivers the marked ballot to the County Election Official. Any application for a ballot by authorized messenger must be received before 3pm the day of the election.

Overseas citizens and U.S. military personnel can find information on how to register to vote and request an absentee ballot at the Overseas Vote Foundation.
