ABOUT THIS STATE
South Dakota is home of the Badlands and could also be the home of good voter turnout if you do your part this year. What if we told you that if you don't vote, we'd sign an executive order to replace Lincoln's face on Mt. Rushmore with Gilbert Gottfried's? Think about it, then learn what you need to know to vote this year before you decide you like that idea. South Dakota is holding its statewide primary and general elections on June 7 and November 8, respectively. Local elections will be taking place on April 12 as well. (Source: Ballot Ready)Be A Voter

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
