South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant says polling places across the state are reporting big noon hours and strong afternoon traffic.
Gant earlier predicted that about 70 percent of the state's voters would cast ballots, down slightly from the 73 percent turnout in the 2008 presidential election. He says that if the lines that started Tuesday morning come back after residents leave work, South Dakota should hit that number if not exceed it.
Polls are open Tuesday until 7 p.m. local time.
