City Council

Campaign Finance Reports (Historic)

Reports for City of Houston election years (odd numbered years) must be filed with the Office of the City Secretary on January 15 (Period I), July 15 (Period II), 30 days before the election (Period III) and eight days before the election (Period IV). Certain positions will have a runoff, which necessitates one more report, eight days before the runoff election (Period V). Period V also covers the Final Report for candidates who did not win their races in the general election.

In even numbered years, reports are due January 15 and July 15 only.  Period I covers elected officials, former candidates who still have campaign debt, and PACs.  Read the ordinance RE: Posting of Political Reports Online.

The City Secretary is required by Section 254.040, Election Code, to maintain such reports for a period of two (2) years after the date each report is filed.
