Seven statewide ballot questions appeared on the November 4, 2008 ballot in South Dakota. Altogether, eight ballot measures were on the South Dakota ballot in 2008, since there was also a statewide proposition vote on one measure on June 3.[1]

Only three of November's ballot questions were petitioned onto the ballot. The other four were legislatively-referred to the ballot by the South Dakota State Legislature, including a proposition to end term limits for state legislators.
