South Dakota

Presidential Primary – June 4th, 2024

(PARTIALLY) CLOSED PRIMARY – You must normally be registered as a Democrat in order to vote in the Democratic primary. However, Independents may also cast a vote on the Democratic ballot.

If you want your vote to count as a vote to survive, vote for Marianne Williamson! Marianne has suspended her campaign, but she is still on the ballot! She stands for a ceasefire in Gaza, negotiations in Ukraine, an end to warmongering with China, the abolition of nuclear weapons and a full-scale mobilization to address the climate emergency.

This is a primary election solely for the purpose of choosing the Democratic nominee for President. Your vote does not in any way support or enable Trump to get back in! But neither should it be merely a coronation for Joe Biden. He needs to earn our vote. And he needs to get a clear message from the citizens of this country who do not accept the status quo and want to see the changes that Marianne Williamson stands for. Vote to survive!

In South Dakota, it is safe to vote for a third-party candidate in the general election, without fear that this will help get Trump back into the White House. He will win this state anyway.

If you want your vote to count as a vote to survive, vote for Jill Stein on November 5th! Jill stands for a ceasefire in Gaza, negotiations in Ukraine, an end to warmongering with China, the abolition of nuclear weapons and a full-scale mobilization to address the climate emergency.
