Ensure Safe and Secure Elections in SD! 

November's election, just like any presidential election, will have an enormous effect on us all. No one should be forced to choose between sitting out an election and protecting their health. 

At the start of the outbreak, Secretary of State Steve Barnett made the crucial decision to mail absentee ballot applications to every registered voter in South Dakota ahead of the June primary. This sensible choice helped to protect our state's most vulnerable residents and resulted in 58% of primary votes being cast using absentee ballots. 

With the ever-present risk of COVID-19, it would be in the best interest of voters across the state if Secretary Barnett, again, mailed absentee ballot applications to every registered voter ahead of the November 3 General Election.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Though it has been months since the coronavirus pandemic first arrived in our state, COVID-19 remains a serious threat for people here in South Dakota and across the nation.

It would be in the best interest of all South Dakotans if you, again, sent absentee ballot applications to every registered voter ahead of the General Election on November 3. Because a vaccine is still reportedly 'a long way off', making absentee voting more accessible is the responsible thing to do.



We cannot ask voters to weigh their health against their right to vote. Absentee voting offers a safe alternative that still allows us to hold our elections in a secure fashion. By taking this small step South Dakota can ensure that voters across the state are not hindered in safely executing their civic duty.

Make it clear that you remain committed to making voting safe and secure for all in our state by mailing absentee ballot applications to every registered voter ahead of November's election.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
