Maine, Ohio Initiatives Mark Emerging Democracy Reform Movement

WASHINGTON - Tuesday’s voting across America produced the first solid evidence of a new citizens’ movement to break the dominance of big money in politics and reclaim control of our democracy, Common Cause President Miles Rapoport said tonight.

“There’s a direct link between the big votes in Maine for accountable elections and Ohio for fair redistricting. Voters across the country understand the damage big money and mindless partisanship are doing to our democracy; they showed today that they’re determined to reverse it,” Rapoport said.
