Supporter: Amendment V gives Independents greater voice
Nick Reid is a Rapid City businessman, a Republican, a conservative, and helped independent Gordon Howie run for the U.S. Senate in 2014.
Nick is no bleeding heart liberal Democrat.
And, he is for Amendment V, which would do away with party designations on the ballot.
Greg spoke with him about the measure, what it would do, how it would work.
Nick says 92% of all races in South Dakota are settled in the primary. To not let Independents vote in them, he says, effectively closes them from the electoral process.
