Mayoral Candidates Cast Their Votes

April 8, 2014, 4:55 PM by Don Jorgensen

Mayoral Candidates Cast Their Votes

The two men who want to be Sioux Falls' next mayor both voted early Tuesday morning and our cameras were there when Mayor Mike Huether and his challenger, city councilman Greg Jamison, cast their ballots.

"Hallelujah, we're about done," Huether said.

That's the feeling from both mayoral candidates as they get in line to cast their votes in Tuesday's important election.

Huether says he slept well, but did wake up once in the middle of the night as he vies for a second term.

"I worked on some thoughts for a potential campaign speech and I did that at about 2 a.m. and that's one of the challenges that I have.  My mind races and if I don't write down those thoughts, I don't sleep," Huether said.

Jamison, who's running in his first mayoral race, says he didn't sleep very well either, but was excited when the polls opened at 7 a.m. 

"Today is the day we've been looking forward to. We've worked really hard to get to this day, a lot of volunteers and a lot of effort, so very exciting to get up and go vote," Jamison said.

Even though both mayoral candidates have already voted, they say there's no time to rest just yet.

"We've got a lot of volunteers showing up at the office doing calls to make sure everybody else goes and votes and remind them of that.  Thanking volunteers all over town; part of that planning for tonight," Jamison said.

"You're going to play until that buzzer sounds and I'm just waiting for that buzzer to sound," Huether said.

That buzzer will sound when the polls close at 7 p.m.
