Absentee voting for South Dakota primary elections opens Friday. All 66 counties in the state are sending out ballots to people who have already requested them.
Residents can still request a ballot or complete one in person at their county courthouses. Ballots must be returned by mail to the county no later than 5 p.m. the day before the June 3 election.
State Republicans and Democrats encourage residents to vote in the primary elections, but don't specify which candidate to vote for in the party.
Secretary of State Jason Gant says there may be a strong showing of absentee votes because of Republican primary races for governor and U.S. Senate.
The state will track and post total number of absentee votes beginning Monday.
