First SD Primary Results In

First SD Primary Results In
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

All polls in South Dakota are now closed.  Voters in the mountain time zone had until 7 p.m. MDT to cast their ballots.  Now that all polls are closed, the first results can be released. 

Voters across the state cast ballots on Tuesday in the primary election.  While South Dakota is one of the last states to have its presidential primary, there are a number of other contested races.

Democrats Jeff Barth and Matt Varilek are facing off to represent the party and take on Congresswoman Kristi Noem in November's general election.  Varilek's supporters spent much of the day encouraging others to vote for their candidate.  Tuesday evening, Barth is hosting a block party for his supporters.

In addition, there are more than two dozen legislative races between the South Dakota House and Senate where candidates from the same party are facing off against each other.

Secretary of State Jason Gant expects to start releasing results right at 8 p.m. CDT.  You can monitor those numbers on the KELOLAND.com Primary Results page.

KELOLAND News has several crews tracking the results.  Tune into KELO-TV throughout the evening for updates.
