In addition to voting for candidates at the Federal level, you will also have the opportunity to elect South Dakota state representatives. One senator and two representatives from each district serve as citizen legislators in Pierre.

The Elevate Rapid City Pro-Business Legislative Scorecard reflects the voting record of the fifteen Rapid City Area legislators on key issues our organization tracked during the legislative sessions. Elevate commits to promoting pro-business policy initiatives and believes it imperative to educate our business and economic community on key issues that were deliberated and how local legislators voted to support or oppose these proposals.
