Campaign Statements

campaign statements-150pxCampaign Disclosure Forms and Filings    

State law requires the filing of campaign disclosure statements by local candidates for elective office, elected officeholders, and committees supporting or opposing local candidates or ballot measures. Statements are filed on a regular cycle, with additional statements required during election years.

These statements provide the public with details on who contributes money to a committee, and how that money is spent. Disclosure requirements are very complicated. Those involved with campaign committees should become fully aware of the legal requirements surrounding campaign reporting.

Local Campaign Finance Limits

As of January 1, 2021, Napa County Code Chapter 2.104 sets a contribution limit of $4,900* per individual contributor, per election, to a candidate or their candidate controlled committee. This is in alignment with current state guidelines for local officials.
*This figure is adjusted by the State of California every two years.

Napa County Code Chapter 2.104 limits a candidate’s loan of their personal funds to their campaign. The limit is $10,000 for the office of supervisor and $20,000 for countywide offices. Failure to adhere to these limits could result in a fine in the amount of $1,000 per violation or 3 times the amount exceeding the limit, whichever is greater.
