"Voter-Owned Elections" (variously called "Clean Elections," "Clean Money," or "Fair Elections") is term used to describe a particular system of publicly funded campaign schemes. A variety of voter-owned election systems are used in a small number of states and local political jurisdictions in the United States.

In the 2010 election cycle Measure 26-108 is the current publicly funded campaign scheme put before Portland's voters. Judging from recently reported campaign contributions[1], business interests are the measure's primary opponents while community organizations and labor unions are its primary advocates.
