What is the Fair Elections Fund?

In the November 2018 general election, Denver voters passed an act establishing the Fair Elections Fund (FEF). For every dollar donated to a candidate running for a municipal office, the FEF contributes nine dollars, provided the candidate has agreed to accept only contributions of $50 or less from individuals and small donor committees. The debates hosted at Regis are required for any candidate who chooses to participate in the FEF.
