About the Campaign Finance Data

Committees formed to support or oppose ballot measures in San Francisco are required to file financial statements with the Ethics Commission. A committee must file electronic copies of statements and reports if it receives contributions or makes expenditures that total $1,000 or more in a calendar year. Those statements are stored in a database and are available for public review on the Commission's campaign finance database.

The graphs on the following tabs are automatically tabulated based on electronic financial statements submitted by each committee. Financial activity filed on paper statements are not available from this site.

The complete datasets of all committees that have filed electronic statements with the Ethics Commission is available from data.sfgov.org for review, download, and API access.

Measure A - Retiree Health Care Trust Fund

Move your mouse over each bar to reveal the name of the committee. If a committee had multiple names, the total contributions will appear in a stacked bar with the totals under each name of the committee.

Third-party spending

An “independent expenditure” is an expenditure made in connection with a communication (e.g., a billboard, advertisement, mailing) that expressly advocates the nomination, election, or defeat of a clearly identified candidate, or the qualification, passage, or defeat of a clearly identified measure, or taken as a whole and in context, unambiguously urges a particular result in an election but which is not made to–or at the behest of–the affected candidate or committee.

Independent expenditures that total in the aggregate $1,000 or more to support or oppose a single candidate for elective local office or a single local ballot measure must be reported as 24-hour independent expenditures during the 90 days immediately preceding the election in which the candidate or measure will be voted on.

Independent expenditures during the 90 day period are reported on FPPC Form 496. Each late independent expenditure report regarding ballot measures is listed in the table below. Spending in support of a measure is labeled with a green color. Spending in opposition of a measure is labeled with a red color.
