Absentee voting starts Friday, April 23, 2021 for the June 8, 2021 election. This is a combined election with Clay County, the City of Vermillion, and the Vermillion School District. Please pay close attention to the information in the upper right corner of the sample ballot to determine which ballot is yours. Clay County voters within Vermillion city limits will have the sample ballot labeled "City Wards."

Clay County voters outside of Vermillion city limits and in a school district other than Vermillion School District will have the sample ballot labeled "Rural NOT in Vermillion School 13-1."

If you are interested in an absentee ballot, please fill out the linked Absentee Ballot Application and either get the request notarized OR send a copy of SD Drivers License, US Military ID, US Passport, or another acceptable form of identification listed on the absentee form. If you do not have access to a scanner/copy machine, you may text a photo of your ID. Please contact the Auditor's Office for instructions. The original form will still need to be submitted via mail or by placing it in the Courthouse drop box. Only military, overseas citizens, and spouses and dependents of military or overseas citizens are omitted from the ID requirement. An Absentee Ballot Application is still necessary.
