SD Ballot Question Explanations Posted Online

South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant has posted a pamphlet online to help voters understand the measures that will appear on the November ballot.

Gant says the pamphlet includes Attorney General Marty Jackley's explanations and the pro and con statements submitted for each proposed constitutional amendment, referred law and initiated measure.

He says the pamphlet is important to help voters understand the measures on the Nov. 6 ballot. Gant says his office will distribute paper versions of the pamphlet, but the online version will also help educate voters.

South Dakota voters will decide the fate of seven ballot measures. They include a proposed sales tax increase to fund education and healthcare, referred laws dealing with grants to large construction projects and bonuses for teachers, and a balanced budget amendment.
