Pine Ridge absentee voter plan approved by county

Voters on the Pine Ridge Reservation will be able to cast absentee ballots without leaving the reservation under a plan approved on Wednesday.

The Shannon County Commission voted to open early voting offices on the reservation, the Four Directions Committee announced. The group said it was an "unprecedented" action that will help Indian voters.

Currently, reservation residents who want to cast an absentee ballot must go to another county.
