SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Both sides of the events center issue have been working to get voters out to the polls over the past few weeks.
Their efforts may be paying off because officials estimate turnout could be anywhere from 35 to-45 percent, which would be a bigger turnout than any of the last two mayoral elections.
The grassroots group of Sioux Falls citizens against the proposed events center came forward just more than a month ago to oppose the project.
