What is Clean Elections?

The Citizens Clean Elections Commission is a non-partisan commission created by voters that educates voters, and provides campaign funding and enforces campaign finance rules and laws.

Clean Elections was founded in 1998 after Arizona voters passed the Citizens Clean Citizen Elections Act (A.R.S. Title 16, Chapter 6, Article 2) to root out corruption and promote confidence in our political process.
