More on the South Dakota

More on the South Dakota Senate race from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader. Republican John Thune has said it is not likely that he will ask for a recount, but he is “not totally ruling out any option.” Thune plans to “follow the process, check the math, and make sure all the t’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted, so that we’re sure there were no irregularities.” One irregularity that apparently will not be challenged is that some polling places in Todd and Mellette counties “mistakenly opened an hour early” and remained open until the usual 7 p.m. closing time, meaning that they were open one hour longer than the rest of the polls. According to the Argus Leader, Todd County “is the Rosebud Indian Reservation” and “is predominantly Democrat,” while Mellette County is “split between Republicans and Democrats.” Reader C.S. notes that Mellette County’s is 52% Indian and also contains parts of the Rosebud Reservation.
