PIERRE, S.D. — Gov. Dennis Daugaard says South Dakota has launched a pardon website for people to go online to seek clemency.
The Republican governor said Tuesday that South Dakota is the first state to have an online, paperless pardon process. The governor’s office says the tool is part of Daugaard’s efforts to make government more efficient.
The new website offers a guided, interactive process to assist applicants in determining eligibility, completing an application and submitting their request online.
Daugaard’s office says the website is mobile-friendly, so people seeking clemency can apply on their phones.
