Your vote this fall is important to South Dakota! We have a chance to win key elections this year but we need your help. We have several races where you can make a difference, including supporting Billie Sutton for Governor, Tim Bjorkman for U.S. House, Randy Seiler for Attorney General, as well as other statewide races for constitutional office and the State Legislature. You can see a full list of Democratic candidates for statewide office, and for State Legislature on our site.
Even if you voted from abroad in the past, if you haven't yet requested your ballot this year, you still need to do so to make sure you can vote. Just go to votefromabroad.org, fill in the Federal request form, print, sign and send it in to your local election office here in South Dakota.
On behalf of the South Dakota Democratic Party I thank you for your commitment to voting!
Ann Tornberg, Chair of the South Dakota Democratic Party
