Gant, SD Elections Board Spar Over Forms, Bills

SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Secretary of State Jason Gant is wrangling with South Dakota's Board of Elections over forms and legislation.
Board members on Tuesday questioned Gant's attempt to change forms such as those used for voter registration without the board's final approval.
Gant says he thinks the board should approve criteria for a form but he doesn't think it's necessary for him to get line-by-line approval. Board member Richard Casey says that could open the door to abuse.
Gant says he's not trying to hide anything, and he plans to redesign some forms and present them for board approval at the next meeting.
Gant and the board also sparred over authority for proposed legislation. Gant says he'll email proposed bills to board members and get their input.
