VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota Political Science League (PSL) will host a public forum with the candidates for South Dakota Attorney General in the Muenster University Center Ballroom A on Thursday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m.

“As part of our voter registration drive, we decided that we wanted to host a forum with Attorney General candidates to help better inform students about the candidates and what they stand for,” said Matthew Yetter, vice president of the PSL, an independently run student organization. “As always, it's important that students make an informed choice about who they vote for, and we hope that this forum will help them do that.”

“The faculty of political science are grateful that we have students who are devoted to bringing in candidates so that students and the community are able to hear from and ask questions of the candidates themselves on the issues that matter to them,” added Ed Gerrish, Ph.D., assistant professor of public administration and faculty advisor of the PSL. “Matt and the other members of the Political Science League have been real leaders this year in working to bring in the Attorney General candidates and to register students to vote.”

The PSL seeks to inspire debate and discussion on key political issues, ranging from statewide to national and international affairs.
