South Dakota: Secretary of State Warns Against Bogus Mailings PDF  | Print |  Email
By Rapid City Journal Staff   
May 08, 2008
This article appeared in the Rapid City Journal.

Secretary of State Chris Nelson is warning South Dakotans that a Boston organization called the "Voter Participation Project" is sending mailings into South Dakota, saying residents -- under "state law" -- must re-register to vote. The mailing lists the Secretary of State's address, adding the appearance of credibility.

"The language in this mailing is not true," Nelson said. "This organization is misleading our citizens into thinking they need to fill out another voter registration form in order to vote."

Nelson said he has received a number of complaints about the mailings and that some of the mailings have gone to deceased South Dakotans. Others have targeted older citizens.

"My elderly mother received a mailing and was concerned that she needed to fill it out in order to vote," Nelson said.

He noted that voters aren't required to re-register when they move, but he does encourage the practice. Nelson said any voter wishing to view their registration status should go to www.sdsos.gov and click on the Voter Information Portal. The site shows where voters are registered, where polling places are and offers a sample ballot for the primary election.
