If you’re wondering about the upcoming 10 ballot measures, here is my take. I was interviewed on the Facts TV with Mike Austad recently and we covered all 10 issues.
Here’s the voter guide by Dakota Voter covering District 6 candidates and asking them questions about many important issues.
Dakota Voter – District 6
Here are the Attorney General Explanations, as well as the Pro/Con on each ballot measure:
Secretary of State – Ballot Measures
Amendment R – Create an independent board for tech schools. Grows government but supposedly more economic development. Amendment S – Amends constitution to add victim rights into constitution. Stronger requirements for notifying and including victims in criminal process. Some law enforcement have concerns it goes too far.
Amendment T – Terrible. Politicizes redistricting process.
Amendment U – Unbelievably slimy payday lenders’ fake 18% cap, invalidates IM21 and gives free reign.
Amendment V – Very bad, help politicians deceive voters about their party affiliation to get elected.
Measure 19 – Correctly adjusts some deadlines for petitions, but bans Rep and Dem voters from nominating independents.
Measure 20 – Small fix to youth minimum wage, helps more youth get hired which is important for job skills.
Measure 21 – 36% cap on payday loans – I’m voting yes.
Measure 22 – Heck no! Taxpayer funding for politicians campaigns, increases political advertising, costs $11 million.
Measure 23 – No way. Less money in your paycheck, forced unionization.
