2012 Presidential Elections

Using the tools below, users may access campaign finance data, report filings, and summary information for 2012 presidential 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.

These are excel and PDF files of summary figures from each report filed during the election year by the presidential candidates included on the presidential map.

This is a presentation of data from the campaign finance reports submitted by the presidential candidates listed on the presidential map. Reports may be amended multiple times but here you will see only the most recent version of each report. Along with the summary numbers from each report the contributions and disbursements are summed in several useful categories such as contributions by date or state or disbursements by date or payee. Reports are processed automatically on receipt and depending on size can appear here within a few minutes of receipt or a few hours for the largest reports.

This list provides you with the names of all individuals who have filed a Statement of Candidacy (FEC Form 2) with the FEC to register as a 2012 presidential candidate. Each individual who is a candidate for federal office must file an FEC Form 2 within 15 days of becoming a candidate. The candidate may file this form on paper or electronically. Paper filers may choose to send a letter that contains the information required on the FEC Form 2, in lieu of the form itself.

You will find here the threshold files for presidential candidates seeking matching funds. In addition to regular quarterly or monthly disclosure reports, presidential candidates who seek matching funds must submit information about "matchable" contributions to the FEC for review. Contributions from individuals where the aggregate amount contributed by the individual is $250 or less are eligible to be matched on a dollar for dollar basis from the Presidential Election Campaign Fund. This Fund includes proceeds from the voluntary check-off of $3 per person from income tax returns of eligible taxpayers.
