Welcome to the San Francisco Ethics Commission’s Campaign Finance Dashboard. This site provides summary campaign finance data for candidates running for Board of Supervisors, Board of Education, and Community College Board and ballot measures in the November 6, 2012 election. The data on each page is automatically tabulated based on electronic financial statements submitted by each committee.
Candidate controlled committees and committees primarily formed to support or oppose ballot measures are required to file financial statements with the Ethics Commission. Committees must file electronic copies of statements if they receive contributions or makes expenditures that total $5,000 or more in a calendar year. Statements are stored in a database and are available for public review on the Commission’s web site. Committees with less than $5,000 in activity are not included on the dashboard summaries.
The charts on this site are interactive. Move your mouse over the chart to reveal contextual information. Use the menu button to access or download the underlying data. The magnifying glass above each chart allows you to search within a chart for a specific committee or value. You can also embed a chart in your own web site or blog.
