DECISION 2018: Ethics amendment, House race go before South Dakota voters

SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota (AP) – Voters in South Dakota are choosing between making Republican Kristi Noem the state’s first female governor or making Billie Sutton the first Democrat in the office in 40 years.

Noem was the immediate favorite after surviving a Republican summer primary. But Sutton has made it a surprisingly tight race. He’s downplayed his party and ridden a compelling backstory as a former rodeo cowboy who turned to politics after being paralyzed in a 2007 accident.

Also on the ballot Tuesday are measures that could dramatically reshape the state’s citizen initiative powers.

One proposal would block the Legislature from changing voter laws – or the ballot question system – without a public vote.

Other measures would make the constitution harder to change and ban out-of-state fundraising for ballot questions.

Voting times for the South Dakota election are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m, Tuesday.
