PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The deadline for groups collecting signatures to get a wide spread of issues placed on the ballot in South Dakota for the 2016 election is quickly approaching.

KELO-TV (https://bit.ly/1MNWRP1) reports that activists must turn in ballot petitions on Monday.

The ballot measures that supporters are working to bring before voters range from a measure to cap interest rates on short-term loans to allowing medical marijuana.

Initiated measure backers must get nearly 14,000 signatures, while constitutional amendments require almost 28,000 to appear on the ballot.

The secretary of state’s office must review the petitions before ballot issues appear before voters. The office looks at signatures and petition completeness.

Secretary of State Shantel Krebs says she hopes her office will finish examining the petitions by the end of the year.
