SD Voters: 46 Percent Republican; 34 Percent Democrat

Sioux Falls, SD

A majority of South Dakota voters who can vote in Tuesday's primary election aren't Republicans.

Republicans, however, will have the most high-profile race on the ballot Tuesday as five candidates square off for the nomination for the state's open U.S. Senate seat.

According to the latest voter registration numbers from the Secretary of State's office, 46 percent of South Dakota voters are registered Republicans and can vote for one of five candidates running for U.S. Senate. They can also vote in the Republican gubernatorial primary for either incumbent Dennis Daugaard or challenger Lora Hubbel.

But 34 percent of the state's voters are Democrats and 19 percent are registered Independents, which means more than half of the state's voters can use the Democratic ballot and vote for either Joe Lowe or Susan Wismer as the Democratic candidate for governor in the fall.

Coming up tonight on KELOLAND News, we'll talk to early voters and have more information on which primary you can vote in.
