Los Angeles Campaign Finance Coalition Expresses Disappointment in City Council Matching Funds

The City Council continues to take baby steps in campaign finance reform. The $6 to $1 match should entice candidates to spend more time talking to in-district donors rather than chasing wealthy special interests. But we are concerned that the qualifying threshold could be too high for women, young people or community members who are not traditionally at the table. We need a campaign matching fund that allows a diversity of voices to represent our city. As is, this package falls short.

California Election Protection Hotline Received More Than 2,000 Calls on Election Day

With polls closed, California Common Cause reports the 866-OUR-VOTE Election Protection hotline received 2,000 calls from voters with questions and voters experiencing problems at the polls. This surpassed the call volume from the last midterm election, likely due to higher voter turnout and changes in how and where voters cast ballots.
