Absentee ballots in SD primary exceed 10,000


PIERRE | Secretary of State Jason Gant says nearly 10,700 absentee ballots have been cast for South Dakota's Tuesday primary election.

More than 11,800 ballots have been sent out to military personnel, students and residents who will be away from the state during the election.

Absentee voting is also available in person at county courthouses for people who want to vote early. Absentee voting ends at 5 p.m. Monday.

Gant predicts a slightly above average turnout at the polls, around 50 percent, in the primary. A Republican race for a U.S. Senate seat nomination and a competitive race for the Democratic nominee for governor have drawn voters' attention.

There are 510,851 registered voters in South Dakota. Registration for the primary is closed.
