Yes you can. Voter Registration forms are available at our office, the county treasurer’s office or CLICK HERE to download the forms needed. To register to vote, you will need to spend at least one night at a motel or local RV Park within Minnehaha County. You will then use that address as your voting residential address (your personal mailbox address with us does not qualify as a residential address for voter registration purposes). Be sure to have the name of each person in your RV printed on the official receipt from the motel or campground.

No you do not, be sure to check out other states that are popular with mail service providers as some require you to have it inspected when registering and for renewals.
Each vehicle and situation is unique and depends on weight, but here are some general guidelines.
Here is a link to the Minnehaha County Treasurer’s Office that gives a thorough over of the vehicle registration/licensing fees.
Your SD registration renewal month is based on the first letter of your last name:
Example: If your last name begins with “R,” your first request for your registration will be issued with an expiration/renewal in August. If you request to register in May, your plates will expire in August. The annual fee will be prorated for you on the first year so you will only pay for the few months of actual time (ie: May to August).
Upon your renewal in August, it will then be a full year registration and will always be due to be renewed in August.
Contact Karen at DakotaPost at 605.332.3711 to assist with your renewals, or you can do renewals yourself when you receive your renewal card.
NO. In most cases, the dealership does not have to do your registration. As a matter of fact, we prefer they don't do it. They have a tendency to do it incorrectly and then we are unable to help. Call us early and let us help you!
No, you do not need to update your Driver’s License immediately. However, when you do renew, the same rules apply:
*The DMV has been notified and aware that our clients will be updating their address when they renew.
It will not affect your Voter Registration for the election this November, as the new address is also located in Minnehaha County. Ballots will be mailed to us beginning the week of September 22nd and continue through October 24th, once we receive they will be placed in your mail box.
After this election, we will work with the Auditor’s office to ensure that your address will get updated to reflect the new address on Potsdam.
No, our mail forwarding rates will actually decrease and take effect upon your upcoming renewal. As stated above, we are currently leasing a location right off the busiest retail intersection in South Dakota. This new purchase and new technology allows us to lower our rates. Check out our rates page here.
*Please note you will retain your same box number.

We are still finalizing the Client Portal and have received some wonderful feedback from you that we will be incorporating. Coming soon will be a more robust way to request your mail, view statements, and update your information.
This premium service allows our customers to login and view an exterior image of their mail. With a simple click, decide if you want us to Send, Shred, or Open & Scan. And of course, our traditional mail forwarding service will still be available and you can continue to call or email us with any mailing instructions.
Virtual Mailbox is actually quite simple. We receive and sort your mail like our traditional service. After it is placed in your box, we scan the outside of each new piece of mail and upload it to your Virtual Mailbox. We then send you an email notifying you that you have new mail. You can then login to the Client Portal and click on the Virtual Mailbox tab and view your inbox. Then with each piece of mail you decide whether you want to have it sent, shred, or have us open and scan it. It’s that easy!

Gold Plan members also have the option to keep their existing contract (Traditional Mail Forwarding plus Gold Plan), convert to a stand-alone Traditional Mail Forwarding contract, or to the new Virtual Mailbox contract before their Gold Plan subscription is up.

And since no two customers are alike, we have rolled out a more transaction-based plan that allows you to control your scanning and mailing costs.
i. Mailings – no set mailing dates or times per month. When customer submits a mailing request, they will be billed $2 plus the postage cost.
ii. Page Scans – Each item requested to be scanned will be charged $1 per request plus 50 cents per page.
