The just-finished primary election gave South Dakotans an app they could download to find out where to vote. It also offered some residents the chance to ditch their precincts and cast ballots at voting centers where staff used an electronic system to check in voters.
The new technology has put off some older poll workers. A few employees had to troubleshoot internet connectivity issues the day of the primary.
But the upgrades mean financial savings for counties as fewer workers are needed. There were voting centers in seven counties and others are considering the upgrade.
Meanwhile, the Secretary of State's office has tapped into the app world to drive more voters to the polls. Vote605 was launched during the primary season and will be revamped for the November election.
