PIERRE, S.D. – Secretary of State Monae L. Johnson has released important information regarding absentee voting for the June 4, 2024, Primary Election in South Dakota. The absentee voting period will commence on April 19, 2024.

To participate in absentee voting, voters must submit an absentee ballot application form to their county auditor. These forms can be requested from the county auditor or found on

on the Secretary of States website.

When submitting an absentee ballot application form, voters must include a photocopy of an acceptable photo identification card or have the form notarized, as per SDCL 12-18-6.1.
Acceptable photo identification cards include a South Dakota drivers license or non- driver ID card, tribal ID, passport, student ID issued by a South Dakota high school or
college, or any other photo ID issued by the United States government.

Voters with any questions are encouraged to contact their county auditor.

In addition to absentee voting by mail, voters also have the option to absentee vote in person up to the day before the election or vote in person on Election Day. Those seeking
an absentee vote in person should contact their county auditor during office hours.
