Ten Years, Many Victories

One decade ago, NC Voters for Clean Elections was formed as North Carolina’s campaign finance reform coalition.

Over the year’s our coalition has accomplished a lot: increasing transparency, holding politicians accountable, and creating alternative Voter-Owned Elections programs for appellate judges and the Council of State.

Highlights from a Decade of Campaign Finance Reform Work in NC:

Voter-Owned Elections

Why We Need It

  • Without clean elections we're getting less democracy for more money.
  • The skyrocketing cost of campaigns pushes candidates into a money chase, and almost all the campaign donations (90%) from North Carolina donors comes from only 1% of the state's population.
  • Voters are turned off, and many qualified candidates are excluded by a lack of funds.
  • Candidates spend too much time raising money and not enough time interacting with voters.
