Can Seattle Boot Big Money Out of Elections By Giving Everyone "Democracy Vouchers"?

Marcus Harrison Green

A group of campaign reform advocates in the city of Seattle has a novel solution to curb the influence of money in political elections: more money.

In less than a week, Seattle voters will decide the fate of the Honest Elections ballot initiative, otherwise known as I-122.

“The vouchers would be financed by a 10-year, $30 million property tax levy”

Interesting scheme to force taxpayers to pay for candidates’ electoral campaigns.

How about if i want my “Democracy Vouchers” to pay for my local library, or Fire dept or, Police dept, or school? Can i assign them to that? Or do i have to to give them to some politician?
