  • Determine who is donating money to political candidates or committees and the amount of those contributions
  • Print campaign finance records from your own computer

Important Campaign Finance Requirements

Several bills recently signed into law by the Governor have made significant changes to the Michigan Campaign Finance Act. These changes impact the reporting requirements of Candidate Committees and Political Action Committees. In addition to the pre-election, post-election and annual campaign statements, Candidate Committee and PACs registered on the local level must file two additional quarterly campaign statements in July and October as follows:

  • Candidate Committee - calendar year in which the candidate is not on the ballot.
  • PAC - calendar year in which the committee is not supporting/opposing candidates.
