Our Day in Federal Court Coming Soon......
Update: All systems are go for our trial starting tomorrow morning!
Remember, it is in the FEDERAL courthouse in Sioux Falls on Phillips Avenue starting at 9am. It is advised to get there no later than between 8:30-8:45. Courtroom 1.
We have been very actively involved in litigation against the State of South Dakota regarding current ballot access laws in our state. Our lawsuit has gone through a lengthy process for over 2 1/2 years now. Throughout this long journey for justice, we have been blessed to be represented by a superb legal team with the ACLU and South Dakota's own, Mr. Brendan Johnson. We are hopeful for a successful conclusion to our case very soon.
Unless there is new legislation passed by our State Legislature resolving what we consider to be unconstitutional statutes, prior to February 6, 2018, we will be going to trial.
The tentative trial date has been set for February 6th & 7th in the Federal Courthouse located in Sioux Falls starting at 9:00am in courtroom 1.
We encourage party members and all interested members of the public to join us as we embark on this final step toward opening up ballot access and providing the voters of South Dakota with more options on the ballot in the near future.
Stay tuned for updates as they develop!
