State election officials are looking to streamline the current approval process of adding things to the ballot, reports the Rapid City Journal.
In November, voters will be deciding on 10 ballot measures, including constitutional amendments, initiatives and referred laws. Over the last year, messy ballot measure procedures resulted in multiple legal issues and challenges as these and other measures were submitted. The state Board of Elections met for over 4 hours recently, discussing 25 changes that could address the difficulties encountered in the last year. Final proposals will be submitted and considered during the 2017 Legislative session.
