Gant: 21 Percent Voter Turnout Needs To Be Better

Gant: 21 Percent Voter Turnout Needs To Be Better
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Secretary of State Jason Gant says he's disappointed with Tuesday's voter turnout of just above 21 percent.

Gant says democracy is decided by the people who show up and participate, and a 21 percent participation level is not a positive trend.

He says his office is active in civic education for young people through partnerships with Rock the Vote and Kids Voting, and officials will explore extending voter participation efforts for all age groups.

Gant also says that there have been significant improvements to the election reporting system. During previous elections, he said the system would crash if there were over 200 simultaneous users.

This year, he says the servers maintained stability.
