More Minnehaha Co. Voters For This Election

October 23, 2012, 5:38 AM by Kellee Azar

More Minnehaha Co. Voters For This Election
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Minnehaha County voters are already coming out in record numbers for the November election. Officials say it's all because this year's presidential race is such a close one.

It's a habit for many people to express their right to vote. Angela Clark has gone to the polls since she was 18-years-old. She sees it as a right of passage.

"I felt like it was very important, when I was 18 as soon as I was able to, I registered. I felt like it was my right as a citizen and it was hard won by many people," Clark said.

And with this year's presidential race, it's even more important to Clark.

"I think it is intensely more of a reason, because it's maybe one or two points between them it's a very close race," Clark said.

Minnehaha County Auditor Bob Litz has noticed it's a common driver among voters this year.

"The presidential years generate a lot of interest and there is no doubt that it's going to bring folks out," Litz said.

A close race is not something new but Clark says it shows that her vote can really make a difference.

"I feel like if I don't show up and show my support I think who is going to, you know. And don't get discouraged if it's close.  I mean, maybe your vote will count," Clark said.

And similar to the 2000 presidential election, Clark says it could come down to one state.

"It could come down to our state, we don't know," Clark said.

Election Day is November 6. You can submit your absentee ballot up until the day of the election
