Greater Transparency in Campaign Financing

Ballot Measure 2 will reduce political corruption by creating real transparency about who is spending money on Alaska elections. If approved by voters, politicians will no longer be able to receive unlimited secret “Dark Money” from wealthy special interests.

We have a fundamental right to know who is spending money to influence our elections. This measure brings transparency to all major political spending, so Alaskans can make informed choices in the voting booth. Protecting the integrity of our elections from the corrupting influence of secret money is essential to a functioning democracy.

Those who benefit from Dark Money and deeply partisan elections are the strongest objectors to Ballot Measure 2. That's no surprise, but for regular people, we have a right to know who is spending big bucks to influence our elections.
