IT'S TAKEN A LONG TIME FOR OUR ELECTIONS TO GET THIS BAD. So it's going to take a sustained, concerted effort to change things. Regardless of your party affiliation, if you’re sick of big donors having more voice and access through your representatives, it's time to take action.
WE JUST NEED YOUR HELP. To FREE THE VOTE needs the commitment of many concerned citizens to band together and save our democracy – for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren. We need passionate volunteers to lead state-level efforts and run FREE THE VOTE State websites. We will provide the starting templates and a network of passionate citizen-activists to share ideas and best practices.
This is a nonpartisan, all-citizens effort with no hidden endowments or “angel investors.” Just us passionate citizens fueled by the need to preserve our democratic ideals. To volunteer in any capacity at the state level, click here. If you have any questions or successes to share, let us know at info(at)freethevote.org.
A resident of Sacramento, Jeff Burdick started FREE THE VOTE when it became clear no solution will be coming from Washington, D.C. A father and former journalist, Jeff has worked in multiple levels of government, including seeing the best and worst of our campaign finance system from within three Congressional campaigns. Never an insider, he typifies the knowledge, talent and patriotism of average Americans who know a nonpartisan citizens-led effort is our last and only chance to save our democracy.
