Voter Issues


• New Mexico, South Dakota: A state House committee in Democratic-run New Mexico has unanimously passed a bill to create a bipartisan redistricting commission, while redistricting reform advocates have announced plans to put an initiative on the 2020 ballot to reform redistricting in South Dakota.

• South Dakota: A committee in South Dakota's Republican-dominated state House has passed a bill almost unanimously to enable online voter registration for voters with a state driver's license or ID card. Republican Secretary of State Steve Barnett is backing the bill, and it will now go to the full House for consideration.
