Clean Elections and Voting Rights

We believe:

  • Voting is a fundamental right of all citizens and no action should be taken to limit any American’s access to the ballot box.  Efforts to make voting easier should be pursued and all efforts that suppress the vote  or place hurdles in the path of would-be voters should be opposed.
  • Private corporations are not individuals and are not entitled to the same constitutional rights as individuals under Article 14 of the United States Constitution.
  • Money has, over the last half century, become too dominant a force in our politics and too influential in the governing and policy making process.   Only substantial reform – of campaign financing and lobbying, among other things, – can ensure that our government truly reflects the concerns and interests of average Americans.
