Secretary Johnson will begin the day at Sturgis Brown High School, where she will be joined by the Meade County Auditor’s Office and SBHS staff to register students to vote.
Secretary Johnson will then travel to Spearfish to register college voters in the Yellow Jacket Student Union at Black Hills State University, where she’ll be joined by members of the BHSU Administration and the Lawrence County Auditor’s office. Secretary Johnson and the Lawrence County Auditor’s Office staff will also stop by Spearfish High School to register students to vote.

“South Dakota has a proud history of civic engagement, reflected by our current count of over 610,000 registered voters.” Secretary Johnson continued, “I urge every eligible South Dakota resident who hasn’t registered to do so. Your voice matters, make it count where it matters most by registering to vote or updating your existing registration today.”
