USD Political Science League to host Ballot Issues Forum
The Political Science League at The University of South Dakota will host a forum that will address concerns surrounding upcoming ballot issues on Thursday, Oct. 19, from 4-8 p.m. in Farber Hall.

"With so many measures on South Dakota's ballot, it is important that people are able to sort out the pros and cons of each issue and identify their preferences on election day," said Sean Flynn, president of USD's Political Science League.

One of the main goals of the forum is to provide information on the ballot initiatives not only to the Vermillion community and students at USD, but also to the state of South Dakota as a whole. Another important goal of the forum is to present all sides of the issues in order to create awareness on the seemingly overwhelming number of initiatives on the ballot. This forum coincides with the goals of both the Political Science League and the Department of Political Science in their efforts to create informed citizenry.

The ballot issues forum will adhere to the following schedule:

4 p.m. – Municipal Amendments A and B: Crawford Road Issue

4:35 p.m. – Amendment C: Marriage

5:10 p.m. ��Amendment E: Judicial Accountability

6 p.m.���Tax Measures (Initiated Measures 2, 7, 8)

6:50 p.m.�� Referred Measure 6: Abortion Ban

The Political Science League is a non-partisan student organization dedicated to providing opportunities which facilitate political discourse on current local, national, and international issues in order to generate heightened political awareness in the student body and community.
