Database of Campaign Finance Reports
Political Contribution and Expenditure Totals
The total political contributions and expenditures, as reported by candidates, officeholders, and political committees, are listed below. These totals can be found on the report cover sheet page 2 boxes 2 and 4 respectively.
Most individuals or entities filing campaign finance reports with the Texas Ethics Commission (TEC) are required to file reports electronically unless the individual or entity is eligible to claim a statutory exemption. See Who Has To File Electronically? for statutory exemption information.
All reports filed on paper after July 2010 can be viewed in PDF format. However, only the total amounts are viewable for paper-filed reports filed previous to 2010.
Total Contributions Maintained as of the Last Day of the Reporting Period
Total Contributions Maintained as of the last day of the reporting period is also referred to as cash on hand. This total can be found on cover sheet page 2 box 5 of the report.
Monthly PAC reports are due by the 5th of each month. A monthly report covers a period beginning the 26th day of one month (except for the first monthly report) and ending on the 25th day of the next month. The report for that period is due by the 5th day of the month after the month in which the reporting period ends. See When To File Monthly Reports for examples and information. Monthly reports must be filed regardless of whether the political committee accepted any contributions or expenditures during the reporting period.
A candidate who did not select modified reporting and is opposed in an upcoming election must file reports of contributions and expenditures by the 3th day and the 8th day before an election. Election data is captured only for general and primary elections. Data is sorted by name unless followed by * which has the data sorted by amount. Consult the Campaign Finance Guides for more information regarding this requirement.
