Establishing relationships with your elected officials is a vital part of creating long lasting change.

In order to do so, it’s important to do some initial research. The South Dakota legislature’s website is a valuable resource for information on your legislators and the legislative process. It’s where you go to:

Additional sources of information:

  • Find live and recorded audio of committee and floor hearings on SDBP’s Statehouse website and YouTube channel
  • Follow #SDLeg on Twitter for breaking news and coverage
  • Sign up to receive ACLU of South Dakota's e-mails for breaking news and legislative action alerts.

Another great way to research your legislator is by attending a legislative cracker barrel or coffee in your district. These events offer a chance to access your legislators and find out their position on topics that are important to you.
