Fair Elections: Making Albany Work for All New Yorkers

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.

Write to other voters

I want to invite you to check out FairElectionsNY.org, a group that is trying to get big money out of our state politics. 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.
