YANKTON, South Dakota — South Dakota's U.S. Senate race has drawn national attention and a lot of advertising, but the secretary of state says that may not convert to heavy turnout on Tuesday.

Jason Gant tells WNAX-AM he's predicting just under 60 percent of South Dakotans will cast ballots in Tuesday's general election.

He says during the last midterm election in 2010, about 70,000 absentee ballots had been cast. This year, voters have turned in about half that.

Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time on Tuesday.
