The San José Fair Elections Initiative will clean up local elections so our government works for us, not wealthy special interests.
Democracy is built on the idea that we all have an equal voice in our government.
Yet today, wealthy corporate interests have tilted our elections in their favor, giving disproportionate influence to special interest groups through campaign contributions and low-turnout elections.
The Fair Elections Initiative is a citizen-led ballot measure that will increase voter participation and end "pay to play" politics. It will ensure our elected leaders are responsive to all the people of San José — no matter whether you’re white, black, brown, or Asian — not special interests that write fat checks.
