On March 4, the South Dakota Senate passed HB 1018, the omnibus election law bill that includes a provision that a ballot-qualified party may remove itself from the ballot. That provision was included so that Americans Elect can revoke its political party status, and avoid being on the 2014 ballot with its own primary.
Also on March 4, HB 1072 was signed into law. It repeals the South Dakota law that makes it a crime for a political party to endorse a candidate for state judge. The South Dakota Supreme Court Chief Justice had asked the legislature to repeal the law, because it is probably unconstitutional.
