Early voting for the upcoming November 3 General Election started on September 18 in South Dakota. Voter registration deadline is October 19.
In addition to the U.S. Presidential race, the U.S. House race, one U.S. Senate seat, and local legislative elections, there are three ballot measures for South Dakota voters to weigh in on.
Constitutional Amendment A would add 15 new sections to our state constitution by legalizing marijuana.
Constitutional Amendment B would add two sections to the state constitution, authorizing the Legislature to allow sports wagering in Deadwood.
Initiated Measure 26 contains 95 sections, and would amend state laws to legalize marijuana for medical use.
Complete election information is available on the Secretary of State’s website (www.sdsos.gov). One of the useful parts to help you prepare to vote is the “2020 General Election Ballot Question Info Pamphlet.” The pamphlet includes an Attorney General’s explanation, a fiscal note, and a pro and con statement for each of the three ballot measures.
