Each year FairVote has its financial books audited by an independent firm. In addition, we file a Form 990 with the Internal Revenue Service as required of all 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Our audit and Form 990 extensively describe our organizational finances. Here are links to our recent audits and the main pages of our Form 990.
