Secretary of State Shantel Krebs says her office is receiving calls with voters confused about where they vote and what they need to bring for identification for today’s primary. There have also been reports of election glitches in Pennington, Hughes, Brown, and Minnehaha Counties. “You will need to bring with you a photo I.D. card,” Krebs said. “That could be a South Dakota driver’s license, a non-driver I.D. card, a passport, a tribal I.D. card, a current I.D. card issued by a high school or higher education institute of South Dakota.” Krebs is also seeking the GOP nod for U.S. Congress in today’s primary.
One of her opponents, Dusty Johnson, urges patience if voters face problems at the polls.
“We want to make sure that every vote counts and we are asking our supporters to be patient as the Secretary of State’s office works through these issues,” Johnson said. “We know this is an inconvenience and may deter people from casting their ballots today, but we are strongly encouraging people to take the extra time needed to cast their ballot.”
