City elective office  Amount of VEC Status of VEC
District Attorney $243,000 No candidate in this race has yet accepted the VEC.
Sheriff $243,000 No candidate in this race has yet accepted the VEC.

Under S.F. Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code 1.128, a candidate who wishes to accept the voluntary expenditure ceiling must file Form SFEC-128 no later than the August 12, 2011 deadline for filing nomination papers. No candidate for District Attorney or Sheriff who has qualified for the November 8, 2011 ballot accepted the voluntary expenditure ceiling (VEC). Thus, the VEC is not in place for the District Attorney's race or the Sheriff's race.
