Ban Foreign Spending on State Ballot Referendums

Resource

"It may be hard to imagine that Putin will interfere in Connecticut’s electoral process, but it would not be illegal because neither federal nor state election law bars foreign entities from contributing unlimited amounts of funds to influence the outcome of a state ballot referendum.

As states across the country attempt to roll back voting rights and protections, Connecticut must lead the way in protecting the right to vote.

Communities of color in Connecticut routinely face long lines and other obstacles when voting. It’s past time we correct these issues and ensure that voters of color, and indeed all voters, are free from voter suppression and intimidation.
