Political Campaign Content Policy

A fundamental purpose of the CMC is to facilitate a forum for free and diverse expression including political speech and to facilitate an informed electorate.

The Community Media Center's Political Campaign Content Policy was established by the Board of Directors to further robust political discourse and to facilitate equitable access by candidates and organizations advocating and influencing the outcome of an election.
