Ohio Flag

An official State of Ohio government website.

There is a wealth of information about campaign finances on the Secretary of State’s website.

We ask every candidate to give us an email address as that is how campaign finance information is shared.

Candidates can read about the offices for election this year, the forms you need, the number of signatures you need, the length of the office terms, and the filing fees in the Candidate Requirement Guide (PDF).

In accordance with R.C. 3517.104, campaign contribution limits are adjusted for inflation in each odd numbered year by the Ohio Secretary of State’s office. Adjustments are based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for All Urban Consumers and certified by the Auditor of State.
