Honest Elections Project Action Applauds Louisianans for Amending Constitution to Ban Private Election Funding

Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project Action, released the following statement:

“Honest Elections Project Action applauds Louisianans for overwhelmingly voting to enshrine a ban on private funding for election administration into the state Constitution. The resounding margin of victory for this provision should send a signal to state lawmakers across the country to follow Louisiana’s lead.

“Private dollars from ideologically biased groups like the left-wing Center for Tech and Civic Life understandably cast doubt on the impartiality of election administration in the minds of some voters. That’s especially the case given that CTCL’s latest venture also creates a potential conduit for foreign donors like Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss to influence American elections by pumping money directly into election administration. Credit to Louisiana lawmakers and voters for ensuring that private, partial actors can no longer have an influence on how their elections are run.”
