PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Absentee voting for the Nov. 4 general election opens Friday in South Dakota.

Residents can obtain an absentee ballot application online or in person at their county courthouses. Secretary of State Jason Gant says the county auditor will then mail a paper ballot to the voter to complete and return.

Ballots must be returned by mail or in person to the county no later than 5 p.m. Nov. 3.

Residents may also vote absentee in person beginning Friday at their county auditor office.

Gant says qualified voters who are confined due to sickness or disability may apply in writing for an absentee ballot via authorized messenger. An authorized messenger would then deliver the ballot to the voter and return the marked ballot to election officials.
