Election Results Trickle In

November 6, 2012, 8:33 PM

Election Results Trickle In

We are getting some of the early results in on the U.S. House Race.

With 249 of 735 precincts reporting, Republican Kristi Noem has 58 percent of the vote to Democrat Matt Varilek's 42 percent.

It's been a busy night at both party headquarters.  At the Republican Headquarters at the Ramkota Hotel, people are watching Referred Measure 16, which decides House Bill 1234.

"It's been difficult to communicate the value of HB 1234 and Referred Measure 16 to the voters," Sen. Mark Johnston said.

Supporters of the measure do not sound optimistic that it will pass.

The voting lines were long at the Minnehaha County Courthouse Tuesday night where ballot counting is underway.  The last ballot was cast at 7:38 p.m. before the room could be cleared and the ballots could start to be tallied.  The electronic scanners have started, but election results could be delayed by about 15 minutes.

Once the results are obtained they will be transferred to the I.T. department on a computer disc.  Those workers will relay the results to the Secretary of State's office.  From there, they will go the Resolution Board, which is made up of two Democrats and two Republicans who will look for bad and mismarked ballots.

Stay tuned to KELOLAND News for more results as they come in.
