South Dakota Officials Clash Over Voter Pamphlet

South Dakota Officials Clash Over Voter Pamphlet

A state senator from Rapid City says South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant broke the law by not including opposition statements on four proposed constitutional amendments in a pamphlet that provides information for the Nov. 6 election.

Gant says he didn't include the statements because none were submitted, even after he sought them. Sen. Stan Adelstein says he thinks Gant didn't look very hard for opposing views.

Adelstein wants a new set of pamphlets distributed and says he is consulting with attorneys. Gant says he followed the law.

The pamphlet has pro and con statements on two referred laws and an initiated measure, but only statements in favor of four proposed constitutional amendments.
