Nomination of County Candidates still under litigation


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  March 30, 2018

If you are interested in running for any county office in South Dakota with the Constitution Party, please be advised that nomination by convention for county offices is still under litigation.

While the new law passed (HB 1286) doesn't include the county offices via convention, Judge Piersol's ruling does apply to any office that was subject to a March primary petition deadline.

If you have inquired to run for a county office with our party and were told by anyone that you could not be nominated by convention this summer, this matter is still under litigation and therefore has not been settled yet.

Any prospective candidate that is interested in running for office with the CP in 2018, should fill-out the contact form located down on right-hand side of this website.

We would love to hear from you!

ALL CP of South Dakota candidates will be nominated by convention this summer!

We are excited to announce that all of the Constitution Party of South Dakota candidates for 2018 will be nominated at our state convention this summer!



Thanks to federal Judge Lawrence Piersol's ruling, Secretary Krebs honoring his court order and today, our Governor signing HB1286 into law, we can finally celebrate!

We are very actively recruiting candidates for this historic election.  If you are a strict Constitutionist and 100% pro-life, we would love for you to take the challenge and seek our party's nomination for any of the offices up for election this year.  Please fill-out the contact form on the bottom right-hand side and let us know you are considering running for a particular office with our party.

State Convention will be held sometime after the state Primary Election.  Stay tuned for specific details in the coming weeks.

In the 11th hour of the last day of session, with certain additional litigation looming and urging by the Governor, SD Legislature finally reverts back to original version of HB1286 and passes a good bill!

For the first time in decades, Alternative Parties in South Dakota will finally be able to function under constitutional ballot-access laws!!!

Bill heads to Governor's desk.
