Campaign finance has been one of the most discussed areas of election law and policy in recent years at both the state and federal levels.

As the Supreme Court continues to change this area of law with numerous landmark cases, states have adapted to these decisions with a variety of bills which attempt to achieve policy objectives while complying with constitutional requirements.

NCSL maintains extensive resources on various aspects of campaign finance, from states’ disclosure requirements to public financing programs and limits on contributions to candidates. This page serves as a table of contents for NCSL's campaign finance resources. For more information, contact Wendy Underhill by email or at 303-364-7700.
