You do not need a “REAL ID” to vote in South Dakota.
Your driver’s license or state ID card will show a gold star if it meets REAL ID requirements under federal law. You may also hear it called a “gold star” ID.
South Dakota only issues real ID-compliant driver’s licenses and state IDs.
If you need to renew your state photo ID or driver’s license (or apply for a new one) you must go through the REAL ID process.
