law has been violated, the division shall refer the matter to a state's attorney or the attorney general for prosecution.

    Section 4. That chapter 23-3 be amended by adding a NEW SECTION to read:

            (2)    The secretary of state for a matter involving a candidate for the Legislature or statewide office; or
