Make your voice heard and
make your vote count!
San Diego's Voters' Voice is a coalition advocating to reform local elections and
ensure that our democracy is working for "we the people."
Engage more San Diegan's in the democratic process by making it possible for every voter to be a campaign donor.
Increase voter choice by providing qualified candidates the opportunity to compete for municipal office.
Inform voters by providing easy access to campaign finance summaries and electoral information in real time.
The time-honored paean of American Democracy, the vote of the people, has become more like a sad song. Computer crafted voting districts, corporations recognized as people, and racism-fueled claims of fraud have all weakened the most basic franchise afforded people fortunate enough to be recognized as citizens.
None of these ploys are new. Thanks to technology, the scale at which they are deployed is unparalleled. The aim, as always, is to tamp down challenges to the status quo.
In San Diego, activists are putting the finishing touches on a proposal pushing back against the current wave of electoral cynicism by enabling broader participation in the process where it counts the mo$t.
Indulge me for a few paragraphs here as I set the scene before explaining how the concept of Democracy Dollars would change the local political landscape.
