Voter registration is open for the June 2 primary until May 19
We have a great opportunity to register more Dems because of interest in the Presidential Primary. If we can get Repubs on the fence, interested independents, longtime friends and especially FIRST TIME VOTERS to register Dem, as Dems, the positive effects on our State will last for decades. So go canvass for your favorite candidate up for election and REGISTER OUR FRIENDS!
Voter registration is very easy here in SD; you can even mail it in.
