Polling centers have been replaced by precincts for this Primary Election. And that’s caused a lot of confusion throughout the day. Long lines have turned into mix-ups. In April’s city election, voters could go anywhere; Tuesday however, that wasn’t the case. Minnehaha County Auditor Bob Litz said, “We had our usual flurry of calls at 7 o’clock this morning from people wondering where they were supposed to go.”
Litz said that’s normal, especially when where a voter can cast their ballot changes. In April’s municipal election e-poll books were used, giving voters the chance to let their voices be heard at any of the 13 polling centers.
This time around, there were 64 designated precincts. “It’s been very smooth,” Litz said.
Even Steven Fletcher, who found out just last week he’d have to cast his ballot at the downtown library instead of the county administration building, had no problems. “I know what I am doing when I get here, so I can get in and out,” Fletcher said.
