EFS: Ballot Question Committee Reports
Ballot Question Reports

Committees that raise or spend money to support or oppose a question put to voters at a state election must organize with OCPF and file periodic campaign finance reports.  The filing schedule for ballot question committes can be found here.

The Ballot Question Committee page groups e-filed statewide ballot question committee reports by the question they supported or opposed and by the year the question appeared on the state election ballot.  This page is intended to provide an overview of the total campaign finance spending on these ballot questions.  For more specific information about a particular ballot question committee, please refer to its report in the searchable campaign report database.
