"Vote No On 16" group out in full force Saturday

Posted: Updated:

The group "Vote No On 16, it's the wrong answer!" is out in full force Saturday.

Volunteers are going door to door handing out flyers -- urging you to vote no.

If you live in South Dakota and head to the polls next month you'll see this issue on the ballot.

It's a measure called Referred Law 16. The measure is supported by the governor as it's from his education plan.

There are five parts to this measure. It deals with yearly bonuses for eligible math and science teachers. It would also eliminate tenure for teachers.

Those against the measure say it will force teachers to not work together. We talked to volunteers about the response they got knocking on doors.

"Most have been very positive. Some needed more information which is why we took the brochures with us but I got positive responses," Barb Kavanaugh said.

And the group is sending out pamphlets so you might be see one on your door or in your mailbox soon.
