Campaign Finance Data Search

On August 6, 2015 the Austin City Council unanimously approved an amendment to the City Code related to electronic filing of campaign finance information. Filers who are obligated to file a campaign finance report are also required to submit a structured data file containing the contents of the campaign finance report. These data files are published to the City's Open Data Portal.

This page allows users to search campaign finance data submitted to the City Clerk between 2016 - present. The data is self-reported and not verified by the City Clerk. For questions about data accuracy, please consult the electronic version of a report in question.
