District 17 voters elected two new faces to the South Dakota House of Representatives Tuesday to work with Republican governor Kristi Noem, who easily won her re-election bid over Democratic challenger Jamie Smith.

Noem made history Tuesday; with all precincts counted by Wednesday morning, the governor received 216,732 votes, which is 62% of the total votes cast in the gubernatorial race. Democratic challenger Jamie Smith received 123,008 (35%) and Libertarian Tracey Quint 9,919 (3%.)
