UNION COUNTY, South Dakota (KTIV) - Absentee in-person voting started September 18th in South Dakota.

Union County Auditor Jackie Sieverding says they have seen an increase in early voters this year.

Because of COVID-19, she says they've added new safety measures.

That includes entering through the back door of the courthouse, and getting your temperature taken before being allowed access.

Officials also are encouraging people to wear face masks.

Sieverding says voters will be asked to show a photo ID.

Acceptable forms include a driver license, passport, student photo ID from a South Dakota school, or a tribal photo.

"If you don't have that you can sign an affidavit that says you are who you are, and you can still vote," said Jackie Sieverding, Union County Auditor.

The last day for absentee in-person voting in South Dakota is November 2nd.
