Contribution and Expenditure Limits

Candidates subject to the Judicial Campaign Fairness Act are subject to various monetary limits.  The dollar amount of each limit for a particular candidate depends on the office sought and, for non-statewide offices, the population of the judicial district from which the candidate seeks election.  A candidate should be aware of the applicable monetary limit in each of the following categories:

  1. Limit on contributions from a person in connection with an election.
      
  2. Aggregate limit on contributions from general-purpose political committees.
     
  3. Aggregate limit on contributions from sources affiliated with a law firm.
      
  4. Voluntary expenditure limit.
     
  5. Limit on reimbursement for expenditures from personal funds.
     
  6. Limit on third-party expenditures.

Information relating to contribution and expenditure limits can be found in the Campaign Finance Guide for Judicial Candidates and Officeholders.
