STL Approves: Fighting for democracy

Fairer Elections for All St. Louisans

Prop D—for Democracy—will ensure that winning candidates in municipal elections have broad support from voters in the community.

We’ve had too many elections in which less than 40% of St. Louisans voted for the winner. It’s time to do better.


Nonpartisan approval voting, with a top-two runoff, is a simple, fair, and easy way to give more voice to St. Louis voters.

Instead of picking just one candidate, Approval Voting allows you to choose all the candidates you wish. Then the top two candidates compete in a runoff election.

It’s as easy as thumbs up or thumbs down—and this simple change will help ensure representative democracy in St. Louis City.
