National Voter Registration Day is celebrated annually the fourth Tuesday in September.
Registering to vote in South Dakota is a simple and easy process.
You can download a Voter Registration Form from the Secretary of State’s website (www.sdsos.gov), fill out the form, sign it, and then submit to your County Auditor. Voter registration forms must be received by the auditor 15 days before any election if you wish to vote in that election.
The Secretary of State’s website also outlines other places where you may register to vote.

- Reside in South Dakota
- Be at least 18 years old on or before the next election
