Berkeley, CA Voters to Consider Public Campaign Financing Measure
On Election Day, Berkeley voters will consider a measure to create a voluntary system of public financing for city elections.
Measure X1 seeks to allow candidates agreeing to limit their acceptance of contributions to $50 or less to qualify for matching funds from the city in the amount of $6 for every $1 raised from Berkeley residents.
Measure X1 was made possible by the recent passage of SB 1107, which allows any state or local government in California to provide for the public funding of elections.
