South Dakota ACLU launches “Right to Vote” campaign

RAPID CITY, S.D. — There are only 19 days left of voting before the general election. It’s crunch time for voters, candidates and civil rights organizations.

The South Dakota ACLU launched its Right to Vote campaign this week. The ACLU is a nonpartisan organization, so they are not endorsing a candidate, but are solely encouraging people to vote.

In a statement from the South Dakota ACLU, they said, “For the ACLU, it’s more important that people vote, and that’s the message behind the organization’s new voting rights campaign.”

The ACLU is pushing their campaign through several outlets on social media, billboards, and emails.

All the ads encouraging voter to make a plan to either vote early, vote by mail, request an absentee ballot, or stand in line on Election Day.

“We just want to make sure that everyone is fully aware of their options and that they can make the decision that works best for them,” says Janna Farley, the communications director with S.D. ACLU.

The ACLU has a variety of resources on their website, where voters can request absentee ballots and read informational brochures, available in both English and Spanish.
