12-4-5.5. Verification of registration information.

At the time voter registration information is transmitted from a county to the statewide voter registration file, the authenticity of the driver license number or the South Dakota nondriver identification number shall be verified with the driver license database. If the person has provided the last four digits of his or her social security number, the social security database shall be checked to determine that the number, name, and date of birth are accurate and that this information does belong to such person. If any of this information is reported as not being accurate, the county auditor shall withdraw the voter registration and attempt to get the correct information with the process provided in § 12-4-5.3. The State Board of Elections may promulgate rules, pursuant to chapter 1-26, determining technical parameters for the driver license and social security database verification.
