Today: Midyear Campaign Finance Reports


Today is a campaign finance filing deadline for all candidates--whether they are running this year or not--and for all non-candidate political committees.

By 6 p.m. this evening, VPAP will post the disclosures filed with the Virginia Department of Elections by close of business today.

The files will allow you to:

  • View total amount raised, spent, and cash on hand
  • Browse a list of donors and expenditures
  • Map donations to statewide candidates by locality
  • Rank House candidates by most raised and cash on hand

The filing periods will cover activity for:

June 2 - June 30

  • Candidates for Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General
  • Candidates for House of Delegates
  • Local Candidates on the November ballot

April 1 - June 30

  • Non-candidate political committees

January 1 - June 30

  • State Senate candidates not on the ballot this year
  • Local candidates not on the ballot this year

It is likely that not all reports will be available this afternoon.
Candidates and committees have until midnight to file. VPAP will update its site early Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, VPAP staff will work overtime this week to add value to the thousands of transactions listed in the reports. This includes assigning a unique ID to each donor, tagging donors by occupation, and assigning a purpose code to each expenditure.
