Term limits

See also: State legislatures with term limits

The South Dakota House of Representatives has been a term-limited house of representatives since South Dakota voters approved Ballot Issue A in 1992, an initiated constitutional amendment. This amendment became part of Section 6 of Article III of the South Dakota Constitution and limits the amount of time that a South Dakota Representative can stay in office to no more than four consecutive 2-year terms.

In addition to the 8 South Dakota state representatives who are leaving office because of term limits, 4 South Dakota state senators are also termed-out.

South Dakota state representatives whose seats are up for election in 2010 but who are unable to run because of the state's term limits are:
