About The Data

The campaign finance summaries provided on this page are based on disclosure statements filed by campaign committees active in the 2018 June or November elections. The original financial statements are available for review in the campaign finance database.

These dashboards draw from a public campaign filings API, cal-access.com. The data is available in a similar format from San Francisco’s Open Data portal:

  • Form 460 Summary – This dataset includes all summary totals e-filed on Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Form 460 Summary Page
  • Form 460 Schedule A – This dataset includes all itemized monetary contributions ($100 or more) e-filed on Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Form 460 Schedule “A” Monetary Contributions.
  • Form 460 Schedule B1 – This dataset includes all itemized loans received ($100 or more) e-filed on Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Form 460 Schedule “B1” Loans Received.
  • Form 460 Schedule C – This dataset includes all itemized non-monetary contributions ($100 or more) e-filed on Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Form 460 Schedule “C” Non-Monetary Contributions.
  • Form 460 Schedule E – This dataset includes all itemized payments made ($100 or more) e-filed on Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Form 460 Schedule “E” Payments Made.
  • Form 497 – This dataset shows contributions to committees during the late reporting period beginning 90 days before an election

The following datasets are maintained by the Ethics Commission Staff, and are used for the data dashboards:

  • Committee Name Mapping – This dataset maps the name of a campaign committee to the corresponding candidate or ballot measure. It includes the position of each measure and FPPC ID.
  • Public Funds Disbursed – This dataset includes funds remitted to candidates participating in the public financing program.
  • Individual Expenditure Ceilings – This dataset tracks the date and level to which candidates’ IECs were raised.

About Filing Deadlines

For a complete list of filing deadlines for campaign committees, refer to the California FPPC website. The relevant filing schedules for committees shown on these dashboards are:

June

November

In general, the Form 460 filing deadlines for 2018 June and November election committees are: January 31, April 26, May 24, July 31, September 27, and October 25, 2018; and January 31, 2019.

Committees are also required to file Form 497 within 24 hours for contributions of $1000 or more made within 90 days of an election. For the June election, this window begins on March 7. For the November election it begins on August 8.

About Public Financing

Candidates for Mayor and Board of Supervisors can be certified to receive public funds for use in their campaign. In order to be certified candidates must, among other things, demonstrate that they have raised a certain amount of contributions from individuals who reside in San Francisco and agree to abide by an Individual Expenditure Ceiling (IEC). To learn more, see the Ethics Commission pages regarding the public finance program and Individual Expenditure Ceilings.
