Low Voter Turnout For Sioux Falls City-School Election

(Pierre, SD) — The voting numbers from Tuesday’s Sioux Falls city-school election are looking rough. It was the lowest turnout for a city election in more than 20 years. Less than eight percent of Sioux Falls’ 150-thousand registered voters cast a ballot. Both Mayor Paul TenHaken and election officials expressed concern over the low turnout. Democratic Senator Reynold Nesiba spoke out, too, proposing on social media that South Dakota should adopt same day voter registration and allow free bus rides in the city on Election Day.
