PHOTO OF THE DAY: THE ROOM WHERE IT HAPPENS
Emily Stern casts her vote in the 2020 general election Tuesday morning, Nov. 3 inside the Freeman Community Center. Poll workers reported strong crowds Tuesday morning, with the line out the door early on and a steady stream of voters thereafter. A host of safety precautions are being taken; a plexiglass shield separates voters from workers at the table, workers are wearing masks and each polling station is disinfected and wiped down after each ballot is cast.
In addition to the presidential election, South Dakota voters are deciding on three ballot issues: the legalization of marijuana for both medical and recreational use, as well as the allowance of sports wagering at casinos in Deadwood.
Polls close at 7 p.m. local time.
