Pursuant to City Charter Article III, Section 8, the following contribution limits became effective upon the date of city council’s most recent adoption of the City budget: No candidate for Mayor or City Council and his or her campaign committee shall accept campaign contributions in excess of $450 per contributor per election from any person, except for the candidate and small-donor political committees. Additionally, the aggregate contribution limit from donors outside of Austin is modified to $44,000 per election, and $30,000 per runoff election.
In July 2020, the City Clerk's Office launched a new electronic filing system for candidates and political action committees to file their campaign finance reports online.
Campaign Finance Contact Form
To file electronically and obtain an E-Filing account and password, candidates and political action committees need to submit the following two forms to the City Clerk’s Office:
The CTA form will still be required to be submitted in hard-copy to the City Clerk’s Office. The CTA form may also be accessed through the Texas Ethics Commission Forms & Instructions page. The Campaign Finance Contact Form may be filled out and submitted online or in person.
Beginning in July 2020, candidates and political action committees are required to submit their campaign finance reports using the City Clerk’s E-Filing System. Candidates must fill out and submit the Campaign Finance Contact Form online or in person before obtaining an E-Filing account.
On October 5, 2017, Council revised Chapter 2-2 relating to campaign finance and election fundraising.
