Sioux Falls, SD (KELO AM) - Officials in Minnehaha and Lincoln counties have a big reminder for those planning on voting in tomorrow’s primary: Check your polling place, because it’s the only place you’ll be given a ballot. Minnehaha County Auditor Bob Litz says the county has gone back to the paper poll books for the primary, meaning voters will have to sign in at their designated polling places. Litz says the county has also changed up some polling places due to building closures and ADA access.
In Lincoln county rapid population growth has prompted some new polling places, county auditor Marlene Sweeter says that growth south of 57th street in Sioux Falls has also caused them to split up some polling places.
Litz added that despite the popularity of the e-polling books system that was used in April, the same paper polling system will be used for the general election coming up in August.
Anyone with questions about their polling place is encouraged to check the reminder card that was mailed to registered voters a few weeks ago; you may also call the Minnehaha county auditor’s office at 605-367-4220 or check your voter registration at the South Dakota Secretary of State’s web site. Voters can also get all their election information by downloading the Vote 605 application which is available for Android and iDevices.
