Many Polling Places Slow For Primary

Turnout for South Dakota’s primary election has been slow.

Precincts in Sioux Falls are reporting low voter turnout as Republicans select a candidate to run for U.S. Senate, and also vote for a candidate to run for governor.

Democrats, along with Independents, are picking the Democratic candidate for governor during the Tuesday primary.

At noon Tuesday South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant tweeted that about 1,250 had cast ballots in Brown County; which means about six percent voter turnout in that county. The Secretary of State is reporting about a 20 percent voter turnout in Sully County and 18 percent in Potter County.

Gant is predicting an overal turnout of about 50 percent.

KELOLAND News will continue to update turnout and election results throughout the day and evening on KELOLAND News and
