"The arms race for money that drives our campaigns threatens the concept of one person, one vote."
Why Democracy Matters Tour Stop - Greenville
On Tuesday, June 28th, join North Carolina Voters for Clean Elections Coalition and its partners for a special forum to highlight the need for a “pro-democracy” agenda as communities across the state work to support good jobs, strong schools, racial justice, and a safe environment for all.
At the heart of democracy is a simple but powerful idea: One person, one vote. But in North Carolina and across the country, new voting restrictions, growing special interest influence, and politically-influenced redistricting have thrown up barriers to participation and diminished the voice of ordinary voters.
