Data

Campaign Contributions Database for Local Elections. This database contains campaign finance records for mayoral and city council elections for cities in over 25 states. Currently, this collection features cities with non-pdf online databases, populations over 100,000, and at least 5 years of campaign finance records. Some smaller cities are also included subject to data availability. This is a working project, and I will expand this database as resources permit. My database expansion priorities include increasing the scope of municipalities to smaller cities and county governments, and increasing the scope of represented offices beyond executive and legislative local seats. If you are interested in this data, please email me.
