SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A measure to raise the state minimum wage will be on the 2014 general election ballot as Initiated Measure 18.

Secretary of State Jason Gant says that based on a validation of a sample of signatures, the group sponsoring the measure submitted nearly 21,000 valid signatures. That’s well over the 15,855 needed.
