Good-Government Groups Want Focus On Public Financing, Not Fusion Voting

Nick Reisman reports in State of Politics “A coalition of good-government groups on Wednesday released a letter to the campaign finance commission tasked with recommending changes to the state’s election laws, urging the panel to focus on devising a public financing system, and not be “distracted” by issues like overhauling or ending fusion voting.

The letter, released by Citizens Union, the League of Women Voters, the New York Public Interest Research Group and Reinvent Albany, questions the scope of the commission’s authority for completely ending fusion voting, which allows candidates for office run on multiple ballot lines.”
