Rapid City Area School Board elections
RAPID CITY, S.D. — Rapid City School board elections are finally here, and over the past week, candidates have been seen increasingly over the past week campaigning.
Official election day is Tuesday, June 8th, and it won’t look much different from past elections…but turnout is expected to be much lower.
“It’s the first time that we’ve done such a small scale election,” said Pennington County auditor, Cindy Mohler. “Usually, we combine school and city election in June, and this year there were only school board races. So this is going to be on a much smaller scale.”
Mohler says absentee voting has been steady, and she anticipates nearly 1,600 absentee ballots. Those individuals were able to drop off their ballots and vote at the county administration building, but anyone voting on the 8th will have to go to their polling location. For those unsure if there is a school board race in their area, they can call the auditors office.
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Follow link for information regarding candidates.
