4th political party gains official status in South Dakota

South Dakota Secretary of State Monae L. Johnson says the “No Labels” Party has officially been recognized by South Dakota after a review of their petitions.

Johnson says her approval allows for candidates at the federal, state, legislative and county offices to run as recognized members of the No Labels Party for the 2024 election cycle.

The party has 30 days to adopt a constitution or bylaws governing its organization and conduct to the Secretary of State’s office. The party’s stated mission is to support centrism and bipartisanship

The No Labels Party petitions included some 8,000 signatures. Just over 3,500 are required to organize a new political party in the state.

The No Labels Party is new to South Dakota and currently has no registered voters. It joins the Democratic, Libertarian and Republican parties as those recognized in South Dakota.
