Prop D for Democracy - STL Approves

City of St Louis


Proposition D will create a runoff system for city elections to ensure whoever wins has broad support. Too many of our local elections have had winners with low pluralities in races; in races between multiple strong candidates, voters should feel able to vote based on policy, without fear of strategic concerns such as vote splitting.

We are aiming to collect 20,000 signatures from St Louis City voters to put these reforms on the 2020 ballot.

You can read more about the details of our policy on our FAQ page.

Proposition D reads:

Shall the City of St. Louis adopt an ordinance to:

  • establish an open, non-partisan system for elections to the offices of Mayor, Comptroller, President of the Board of Aldermen, and Alderman?
  • enable voters to choose all the candidates they wish in the open, non-partisan primary ?
  • allow the top two candidates to then compete in a runoff general election?

Sign on for your support, and don't hesitate to contact us with further questions!

In solidarity,

We, concerned citizens of St Louis, understand the critical need of our elected officials to have broad support and a strong public mandate. We support the reforms proposed by STL Approves which will mitigate vote splitting and "strategic" voting. We need these reforms now, before another important election is inevitably split. We need a strong democracy to bring St Louisans together.
