D.C. Council Unanimously Passes D.C. Fair Elections

On Tuesday, February 9 the D.C. Council voted unanimously to pass the Fair Elections Act of 2017.

Public Citizen is a founding member of the D.C. Fair Elections Coalition, which is committed to strengthening local democracy. The Fair Elections Act would establish a small-donor public financing system and effectively amplify the voices of everyday D.C. residents.

We are moving in the right direction to limit special interests and shift power to the people in D.C. elections. Sign up to get involved as we fight to fully fund and implement this crucial program in the months ahead.
