Campaign Summary

In 2015, our South Dakota members launched a bold campaign to pass the nation’s first statewide Anti-Corruption Act, and they won in South Dakota in 2016.


In 2017, establishment politicians repealed it. Represent South Dakota members mounted another campaign and got Amendment W, the Voter Protection and Anti-Corruption Amendment, on the ballot for the 2018 election to close the loopholes and protect the people’s ballot initiative process.


Despite incredibly hard work by our Represent South Dakota chapter, lobbying groups spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a campaign to misinform voters and ultimately prevailed. Represent South Dakota is getting re-organized and preparing for the next round of the fight.

South Dakota is part of the biggest wave of anti-corruption reform in US history.
