South Dakota Amendment B (1994) was an amendment to section 2 of Article VII of the Constitution of the state of South Dakota, relating to the minimum age to vote. It failed with 228,444 votes in favor.

Text of measure

The Constitution requires that a citizen be 18 years old before (s)he can vote in any election. The proposed amendment allows a 17-year-old, whose 18th birthday is on or before the November general election, to vote in all elections held that year. These other elections include primary, school district and municipal elections.

A vote "YES" will change the voting age.

A vote "NO" will leave the voting age as it is. [1]
