Candidate Overview

Delaney has pledged to fix democracy first!

Delaney has a strong democracy platform that addresses each category of democracy reform. At our Democracy Town Hall, the Congressman announced his support for public financing of elections and HR 1, the For The People Act, more broadly. However, Delaney does not believe Electoral College reform is a worthwhile topic for reformers.

Here are some policies he could adopt to improve his platform:

  • Repeal discriminatory voter ID laws and other voter suppression policies
  • A full end to felon disenfranchisement
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Ranked-choice voting

In His Own Words

“Too much money in politics is a perversion of democracy. Gerrymandering is a perversion of democracy.”
