Campaign Finance Filings

The CampaignDocs eRetrieval system contains financial information provided by candidates and committees beginning in 2015. It can answer questions about who has filed a Candidate Intention Statement (Form 501) stating they are running for office; which committees have formed in support or opposition of a measure; what candidate committees have been formed; and finance disclosure statements showing who has contributed money, who is receiving money and how that money is being spent.

Use the CampaignDocs eRetrieval System to research campaign contributions and expenditures, and to review campaign statements filed by candidates and committees.

For filings prior to 2015, please contact the elections office at (805) 568-2200.

For City candidates, please visit the City Clerk’s website. Links to the City websites can be found on the CampaignDocs eRetrieval system main page.
