What is the Center for Ballot Freedom?

A fiscally sponsored project of Tides Advocacy, the Center for Ballot Freedom is a unique structural reform initiative led by a cross-partisan coalition focused on reviving and relegalizing fusion voting in order to solve our nation’s polarization problem.

Why do we think this project is important? 

Fusion voting is one of many promising reforms that could counteract the dominant winner-take-all dynamic in our elections by empowering new voices, new ideas, and new parties to emerge—and in the process, increasing healthy competition in our political system.

How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting the Center for Ballot Freedom? 

In 2023, Democracy Fund Voice approved a one-year grant of $200,000 to the Center for Ballot Freedom.
