Graphic Presentations

The Commission has developed several graphic interfaces to help you understand campaign finance data. These graphic presentations allow you to search for specific candidates, political party committees and political action committees. You can also explore independent expenditures for and against House and Senate candidates.

The interactive Presidential Map displays summary financial information about presidential candidates. Users can highlight on the map the amount of money raised on a state-by-state basis. Users also have the option of viewing contributions to specific candidates, all candidates or all candidates from a political party. Users may select to view contributions in specific states. The map lists contributors by name, city, amounts of donations and dates within the first three digits of their zip code. These lists can be sorted and downloaded to a spreadsheet format.

The interactive House and Senate Map displays summary financial information about congressional candidates. You can find lists of candidates and money raised and spent on a state-by-state basis. The map provides links to dynamic overviews of individual campaigns, comparisons among contenders for different offices, and detailed information about contributions and disbursements for specific candidates, along with state-by-state overviews of financial activity.

The National Party Committee Summaries pages display summary and detailed financial information about the six Democratic and Republican national party committees. You can also review summary information for a single party committee. When you select a single party committee you will be able to review summary financial information about that committee. In addition you can view details about specific filings or view report and statement images.

The interactive House Independent Expenditure Map displays independent expenditure spending for or against House candidates in congressional districts for a two-year period. The data for the color density is taken from "24-hour" and "48-hour" notices of independent expenditures filed in the selected two-year period. Independent expenditures represent spending by individual people, groups, political committees, corporations or unions expressly advocating the election or defeat of clearly identified federal candidates. These expenditures may not be made in concert or cooperation with or at the request or suggestion of a candidate, the candidates campaign or a political party.

The interactive Senate Independent Expenditure Map displays independent expenditure spending for or against Senate candidates in congressional districts for a two-year period. The data for the color density is taken from "24-hour" and "48-hour" notices of independent expenditures filed in the selected two-year period. Independent expenditures represent spending by individual people, groups, political committees, corporations or unions expressly advocating the election or defeat of clearly identified federal candidates. These expenditures may not be made in concert or cooperation with or at the request or suggestion of a candidate, the candidates campaign or a political party.

The Political Action Committee Summaries pages display summary and detailed financial information about political action committees. You can also search for an individual PAC or review summary information aggregated by organization type. The individual PAC search will provide you with summary financial information about your PAC. In addition you can view details about specific filings or view report and statement images.
