Clean Elections Texas Education Fund


Clean Elections Texas Education Fund (CETEF) has worked for many years with national coalitions and state groups to learn as much as possible about steps to take to assure our elections are secure and free from outside influence. Having helped county officials in the selection of new voting equipment, we were able to see the machines put to the test. We work with the county and a citizens group, Dallas V.O.T.E.S., to support our county in preparing for expected overwhelming voter turnout, using new voting equipment, addressing Covid-19 issues facing them especially at the peak of the pandemic, implementing voting regulations passed by the legislature, and educating voters on the changes in voting procedures and redistricting.

Clean Elections Texas is active in state-wide redistricting reform advocating for an independent citizen redistricting commission and for greater transparency and public participation in the existing redistricting process and judicial selection reform. We are member of “Fair Maps Texas”, coalition of several non-partisan organizations, including the League of Women Voters of Texas, ACLU, Common Cause and several others working to reform the redistricting process in Texas in a fair and open manner.


About Us

Our Efforts

On the federal level, we participate in promotion of democracy reforms by actively supporting various major pieces of federal legislation including: The Freedom to Vote Act (TFVA) which sets basic national standards for voting, stops partisan gerrymandering, and ends the dominance of dark money in politics; The Freedom to Vote Act addresses voter registration and voting access, election integrity and security, redistricting, and campaign finance; and The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (VRAA) which restores and modernizes the original protections of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA).

At the State Level, Clean Elections Texas advocates for democracy reforms such as redistricting reform advocating for an independent citizen redistricting commission and for greater transparency and public participation in the existing redistricting process.
