Fair Elections is a campaign for voting rights & comprehensive campaign finance reform as the first order of business in the 2019 New York Legislative Session. They have a great handout that lays out their ideas and how they can win.
Write your reps
We must fix our democracy first for 2019. We need a campaign finance system that values small donors first, not big checks from lobbyists. Please support Fair Elections for NY and pass voting rights and a small donor public financing system.
Target your postcards to your Assemblymember and State Senator
and Governor Cuomo. Carl Heastie and Andrea Stewart-Cousins are also good targets for this campaign.

Connecticut has a small donor public financing system that works well and it’s time to have one for our reps in Albany. Fair Elections NY is pushing for a campaign finance system that values us first, not big checks from lobbyists.
