Coming Today: Mid-October Campaign Finance Reports
Midnight tonight is a campaign finance filing deadline for all candidates running for offices on the November 5 ballot and for all non-candidate PACs.
By 6 p.m. this evening, VPAP will post the disclosures e-filed with the Virginia Department of Elections by close of business. On vpap.org, you will be able to:
- View top level numbers for amount raised, spent, and cash on hand
- Browse a list of donors and expenditures
- Rank House and Senate candidates by most raised and cash on hand
Candidates have until midnight to file, so a full list of reports will not be available until tomorrow morning.
For candidates, the reports cover activity during the month of September. For PACs, the reports cover activity from July through September.
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.
