South Dakota voters will again decide the fate of a ballot measure banning abortion. A group supporting such a ban claims to have collected twice the number of signatures needed to qualify its proposal for the November ballot.
In 2006, voters rejected an outright ban on abortion that had been approved by the legislature. This year's initiative would allow exceptions for cases of rape and incest.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
