Mitchell police have arrested Davison County resident Craig Guymon after he allegedly voted twice in Tuesday’s Mitchell School Board election. Guymon is accused of voting at the polling place on North Capital Street and turning in an absentee ballot to the Davison County Auditor’s Office the same day. South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant has pushed for more counties to use computerized voting centers. He says that although the current checks and balances system in place worked this time, the use of a computerized vote center would have prevented the incident from occurring. Guymon has been charged with voter fraud, which is a Class 6 felony punishable by up to two years in prison.
