PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Secretary of State Shantel Krebs says an initiated amendment to the South Dakota Constitution that seeks to put legislative redistricting in the hands of a commission has been validated and certified to appear on the November 2016 general election ballot.

A Constitutional amendment initiative requires a minimum of 27,741 signatures from South Dakota registered voters.

Krebs says the measure’s sponsor turned in 43,198 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office. A random sampling of 5 percent of the signatures determined that 70.2 percent, or 30,335 of the 43,198 signatures - were in good standing.
