"The arms race for money that drives our campaigns threatens the concept of one person, one vote."
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.
