Oakland, California, residents passed a measure to give all adult residents $100 in taxpayer-funded vouchers, called “Democracy Dollars,” to donate to local political candidates every other year, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported.

The ballot measure, called the Fair Elections Act, was approved by nearly 74% of residents, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
