Civic Engagement Data Now Online

The South Dakota Dashboard Now offers interactive charts that feature both registered voter turnout as well as estimates of voting-age population turnout.

The registered voter turnout data hub features data gathered from the South Dakota Secretary of State’s office going back to the year 2000. The interactive charts feature breakdowns by county, metropolitan area and metropolitan versus rural areas. Viewers can easily peruse the charts to see trends in voter turnout from one election cycle to the next.

Meanwhile, the voting-age population turnout data hub features estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. This information is broken down into several categories, including race, income, educational attainment, gender, and disability status. For example, in 2016 individuals between the ages of 18 and 24 had the lowest estimated voter participation rate at just 31.6 percent.
