The Vote Yes on V campaign is a diverse group of leaders: Democrats, Republicans, and independents, responding to the National anger over an election system rigged against the voters. Nearly 40,000 South Dakota voters put Amendment V, Non-Partisan Elections on the November 2016 ballot so that the voters own our Government, not the political Parties and special interests. Amendment V ensures that all South Dakota voters can participate and vote for the candidate of their choice regardless of Party.
How It Works: Amendment V – Non-Partisan Elections
It’s extremely simple, just like South Dakota's Local elections for Mayor or City Council. Voters choose the best person, not the Party, to represent them.
- Every voter gets the same ballot with the names of all the candidates. This levels the playing field for candidates. Everyone has the same requirements to get on the ballot.
- No more taxpayer funding for Private Political Party activities.
- No more Party labels.
- Voters vote for their favorite candidate.
- The two candidates with the most votes go on to a runoff style election in November.

I would prefer something like Top-Four Non-Partisan Elections. This version would keep the Top-Two but add up to two more candidates with a vote of 20%.
