It's not too late to STEP OUT OF LINE FOR DEMOCRACY! Get that ballot in the mail ASAP as it must be received by your County Clerk's office no later than Tuesday, July 14.
Are you nervous because you haven't received your mail in ballot yet? ME, TOO!!! If you get it today or tomorrow, fill it out, and get in the mail right away, you should be fine. If you receive it on Friday and can be sure it will be picked up that day, you will probably still be fine.
But, if patience isn't your strong suit, or you're worried about cutting it too close with the mail, then feel free to get out there and go to your nearest early polling location. Early voting continues daily through Friday, July 10. Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Either take your ballot with you and surrender it, or let them know you haven't received your ballot.
There are many safety precautions, including social distancing, which all counties have implemented to keep us safe, but please WEAR A MASK out of respect for others and especially the people working the election. They are on the front line all day every day risking exposure to Covid-19 so that we can safely and responsibly do the right thing by exercising our right to vote, and right now it is more important then ever!
One more tidbit for voters in SD 14 where Kirk Watson has resigned. Because this is a special election as well as the primary runoff, there was confusion on many ballots that were mailed out. If you already voted by mail and did not get to vote in the runoff races, it's not too late to rectify that. Just go to your early voting location and tell them what happened and ask for a provisional ballot. If your mail in ballot has not already been processed, your provisional ballot will be counted. **It is very important that you ask for a provisional ballot because you don't want to be accused of voter fraud!
