  • Federal Election Commission (FEC)

    In 1975, Congress created the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to administer and enforce the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) - the statute that governs the financing of federal elections. The duties of the FEC, which is an independent regulatory agency, are to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections.

  • Project Vote Smart

    This project is an historic undertaking. Citizens come together, not in selfish interest or to support one candidate over another, but to defend democracy. It is an extraordinary gathering of people committed to one purpose: to strengthen the most essential component of democracy -- access to information -- even as it suffers grave attacks from candidates and political parties, many who are now willing to manipulate information and deceive voters.  (Do you think there are only three, maybe four parties with candidates for president?  Go here to see otherwise.  And for New Mexico-specific data click here. )

  • Regulating Lobbyists at the Statehouse
    • The job of lobbyists  - whether paid or unpaid - is to influence public officials to support a particular point of view. State legislatures have passed laws regulating lobbyists to ensure a distance between the lobbyists' legitimate role and the interests of the public at large. Many states' statutes include separate codes of ethics for lobbyists. These codes specify registration fees, disclosure requirements and other regulations and prohibitions. In addition to any laws they must follow, lobbyists have their own code of ethics: American League of Lobbyists Code of Ethics
