Voter turnout in South Dakota was down compared to the 2018 midterm election, though final numbers ended up being close to the state's historical average.

According to the Secretary of State, voter turnout was just over 59% this year.

It was nearly 65% in 2018, but that race saw historically high turnout.

State election data shows voter turnout for midterm elections has averaged right around 60% since the 1990s.
