Todd County is a county located in the U.S. state of South Dakota. As of the 2010 census, the population was 9,612. Its largest city is Mission. Todd County does not have its own county seat. Instead, Winner in neighboring Tripp County serves as its administrative center. The county is named after John Blair Smith Todd (April 4, 1814 – January 5, 1872) who was a delegate from Dakota Territory to the United States House of Representatives[1] and a general in the Union Army during the American Civil War. He was a cousin of Mary Todd Lincoln.

The county lies entirely within the Rosebud Indian Reservation and is coterminous with the main reservation (exclusive of off-reservation trust lands, which lie in four nearby counties). It is one of five South Dakota counties entirely within an Indian reservation. (The others are Corson, Dewey, Shannon, and Ziebach.) By per capita income, is the 5th poorest county in the nation.
