RAPID CITY, S.D. — State Sen. Craig Tieszen, R-Rapid City, last week introduced a bill that would essentially forbid the use of a mail-forwarding service as an address for voter registration, the Rapid City Journal reported.
“It’s intended to make sure that people that vote in our elections here have at least some connection to South Dakota, and to make sure those people who do not have a connection to South Dakota do not participate in our elections,” Tieszen told the Journal.
The bill targets people who use mail-forwarding services to establish a postal address, forward their mail and sometimes assist with other things including driver licensing, vehicle registration and concealed-weapon permitting, the paper added.
