We'll talk about the Maine Clean Election Act -- public funding for candidate campaigns-- as we move through our third decade. How does our program work in Maine? What have been its benefits and disappointments? How do publicly financed elections fit into the practical landscape for campaign finance reform considering the current legal environment? What trends are we seeing in Maine and nationally?

Special Guests:

  • Anna Kellar, Executive Director, Maine Citizens for Clean Elections
  • Ian Vandewalker, Special Counsel, Democracy, Brennan Center for Justice

This show will be pre-recorded; no listener calls will be taken. Comments and questions may be emailed to with Democracy Forum on the subject line. Learn more here.
