2016 Elections Could Require Special Sessions in 2017

The Rapid City Journal reports that if South Dakota voters approve some measures, legislators will have a hard time implementing the changes before January 1, 2018.  Amendment T would require new districts to be drawn in South Dakota.  Amendment V would convert South Dakota to nonpartisan elections.  Both measures are Constitutional Amendments and could require a special session in 2017 for the legislation to be drafted in time.  

For more information about the 2016 Elections, visit the Black Hills Knowledge Network online news archives or Voters Resource Guide.  You can also visit the Secretary of State's website
