Primary elections are on Tuesday June 5 but some people are putting their vote in early.
Absentee voting is underway this weekend in Minnehaha County for those who can't make it out on Tuesday. Regardless of their reasoning for participating early, voters want to make sure their voice is heard.
"I think it is very important. One vote can make a difference," says absentee voter John Broadbooks.
Absentee voting is open until 3 pm on Election Day.
