Democrats Seek More Registered Voters

With next year’s election almost a year away, political parties in South Dakota are working on raising money, voter registrations, and in the democrats case, passing petitions on an initiated measure that would raise the state minimum wage. Zach Crago, interim Democratic Party Executive Director says they are putting a push on registration as they ask for petition signatures…

Democrats decided to make Deb Knecht of Houghten their Chair at a central committee meeting in September. Crago said that move will help them regain their focus and plan ahead…

According to the Secretary of State’s website; republican registrations as of October first were up about five thousand to over two hundred forty four thousand, democratic registrations were up about a thousand to just over one hundred eighty eight thousand six hundred, and registered independents jumped up over nine thousand registrations to just over one hundred thousand.
