South Dakota voters are looking ahead to the next election.

Absentee voting is already underway for the June Primary, which is only 34 days away.

First up is the Governor’s race, Congresswoman Kristi Noem is going up against Attorney General Marty Jackley for the Republican nomination to lead South Dakota. The Democratic race is uncontested, so there won’t be anything on the June ballot.

Noem’s current seat in the U.S. House of Representatives is also up for grabs. Here is the field of Republicans vying to head to Washington. In the order on the ballot, state lawmaker Neal Tapio, Secretary of State Shantel Krebs and former Public Utilities Commissioner Dusty Johnson.

The winner of that race will be facing Democrat Tim Bjorkman and two third party candidates.

Finally, no matter what your political party affiliation, everyone in South Dakota can decide on a question related to Marsy’s Law.

We’ll continue to follow all of these candidates leading up to the June primary. Stay with Your Local Election Headquarters on KELOLAND-TV and
