Today: Year-End Campaign Finance Reports
Today is the deadline for all candidates and PACs to provide a year-end accounting for their campaign contributions and expenditures.
By 6 p.m., VPAP will post the disclosures e-filed with the Virginia Department of Elections by close of business today. You'll be able to see the top-level numbers and browse lists of donations and expenses.
Note: The filing deadline is not until midnight. Not all reports will be available this evening.
The deadline applies to all committees, including:
- Candidates for statewide office
- Candidates for the General Assembly
- Candidates for local office on the ballot this November
This week, VPAP staff will work to add value to the tens of 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. The value-added data should be available by next Monday.
