Campaign finance, nonpartisan elections are two ballot questions

By Maricarrol Kueter, SDNA
South Dakota voters will have the opportunity to completely overhaul the state’s election system, potentially doing away with the current primary system and infusing public funding into campaigns. Those are key elements of two significant election reform issues, Initiated Measure 22 and Constitutional Amendment V, on the 2016 ballot. Initiated Measure 22 would rewrite campaign finance laws to limit contributions, require additional reporting, regulate lobbyist activities, create an ethics commission and set up a system for publicly funded campaigns.
