SAY "YES" TO PUBLIC CAMPAIGN FUND ON N.C. TAX FORM
You can do something very special when you fill out your tax return this year.
In many states, special-interest groups are spending millions to influence who gets elected as a judge. But in North Carolina, judges have another option.
In 2004, four of the five winning candidates for the N.C. Supreme Court and Court of Appeals received help from the Public Campaign Fund in exchange for accepting strict fundraising limits.
The Public Campaign Fund also sent four million Voter Guides across the state, with information about the courts and candidates.
Fair courts and fair elections go together. But this program needs your help.
Find the question about the Public Campaign Fund on your N.C. income-tax return and check it YES. Saying “Yes” doesn't change your tax bill and refund; it just transfers $3 to the new Public Campaign Financing Fund for each person who says "Yes."
