1. This is my observation on the SD ballot.

-- All the ballot initiatives were put there by the SD GOP-controlled legislature.
-- The legislature could have voted on them, but the gopers decided to junk up the ballot so that it would take an hour to read and re-read the initiatives in an attempt to understand them. That would discourage the 47% from voting by generating long time waits at the polls on election day.
-- One of the SD initiatives was to increase the reimbursement rate for official travel of members of the legislature. It needs to be modernized, but the gopers want us to approve an increase so that the GOP-legislature's record doesn't have it as a tax increase by them.
-- I voted NO on all initiatives. If the legislature wants them, let them enact them.

I strongly suspect that you (if you are short of time), can be responsible in voting NO for all initiatives IF your state legislature is controlled by GOP. If the goper legislature want them, make them vote for them.

2. No-Yes-Yes-Yes-No-No seems simple enough to me.

3. That would be fine, if I knew more about each of them.

4. Thanks!

Got a ballot proposal reference card from one of the local candidates in the mail to use on election day and I just filled it in going by the info provided by the site you linked to. Also gave the name of the candidates for state Supreme Court which I wrote down on the reference card.
