Call Your Elected Leaders
Tell them: “It’s time to make Albany work for all New Yorkers. Make passing comprehensive democracy reform for New York State Elections the first order of business in 2019 including implementing small donor public financing, lowering contribution limits, and expanding the freedom to vote.”
New Yorkers deserve a responsive, accountable government. Voter turnout in New York is among the lowest in the nation, due in part to antiquated procedures for registration and voting that discourage participation. And our campaign finance system favors the wealthy over everyday, working New Yorkers. To tackle the crises we face in housing, living wage jobs, criminal justice, affordable health care, transportation, climate, fair taxes, and more, we must transform a campaign finance system that advantages the interests of the few over those of the many.
