Absentee voting changes requested in SD

A change in absentee balloting procedures in South Dakota is being contemplated because of the increasing popularity of early voting.

INterestingly, the SD system for absentee procedure is an in person early voting system, where most "absentee" balloters go through the same mechanical procedure as an absentee balloter voting via the mail. You fill out the ballot, place it in an envelope, then put this in another envelope that also must be filled out.

And all this is being done in person?!

The procedure looks like it's under review, since 20% of SDakotans are now voting absentee.
