Campaign themes


In information submitted to Ballotpedia, Hajek outlined the major issues of her campaign:

"The key issues I see facing our State are economic development and education. With more federal mandates on the horizon, our State will face unprecedented financial pressures. So we need to concentrate on prudent and effective use of taxpayer dollars and eliminate waste. That also means wisely using valuable legislative time to work on matters critical to shaping a great future for the people who make South Dakota their home."[1]

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of South Dakota scorecards, email suggestions to
