On November 3, 2014, Caplin & Drysdale's Trevor Potter was part of the panel "Money Talks: Free Speech, Political Action Committees and the Future of Campaign Finance Regulation," which was the fourth session of the International Foundation for Electoral Systems' all-day forum on elections and electoral trends in the United States and around the world. The panel was recorded by C-SPAN and can be viewed in its entirety by visiting C-SPAN's website.
The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (or IFES) supports citizens' right to participate in free and fair elections. Their independent expertise strengthens electoral systems and builds local capacity to deliver sustainable solutions. As a global leader in democracy promotion, we advance good governance and democratic rights by (1) providing technical assistance to election officials, (2) empowering the underrepresented to participate in the political process, and (3) applying field-based research to improve the electoral cycle.
