SD auditors say new voter residency rules difficult to manage for local election officials

The top election official in South Dakota’s largest county says a law passed last winter that requires all voters to live in the state for 30 days has turned into a headache for her office. Some full-time travelers or out-of-state residents without a home in Minnehaha County wind up on its voter rolls through automatic registration at driver’s licensing stations, Auditor Leah Anderson told county commissioners last week. Voters list their addresses on their registration forms under penalty of perjury, but Anderson’s concerned she won’t have time to verify suspect addresses and voter eligibility in time to comply with the new law.
