Early voting for Rapid City Area Schools bond proposal is underway

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Early voting for the Rapid City Area Schools bond proposal has begun.

District Residents, including those living outside of Rapid City, have just a few more weeks to cast their ballots. You can go in person to cast your vote between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. in Rapid City from now until February 24. If you want to vote and haven’t registered the deadline is this upcoming Monday at 5 p.m. You must be at least 18 to vote and live within the school district’s boundaries, which means even residents outside of Rapid City are eligible.

“So that actually does include parts of Meade County like in Black Hawk and Summerset. It extends almost to keystone so if you are in the school district boundary you can in fact vote” said Katy Urban, Community Relations for Rapid City Area Schools.

The Pennington County website has an entire list of polling places where you can find your location. Also be aware that a few polling locations have been changed.

“People that were moved were mailed a new voter registration verification card so they know of the change” said Cindy Mohler, Pennington County Auditor.

The final day to vote is in three weeks, on February 25. A school bond has not been passed since 1973, so if passed this election could be historic for the district in Rapid City.
