Campaign Finance Reports

The campaign finance law, title 15 of the Election Code, regulates the acceptance of, expenditure of, and reports regarding money in political campaigns by candidates, officeholders, and political committees.

Elgin ISD is the filing entity for campaign finance reports filed by trustees, candidates for trustees, and certain political action committees. The district does not assess the accuracy or completeness of reports. Questions regarding campaign finance and title 15 should be directed to the Texas Ethics Commission at (512) 463-5800. The Secretary of State can answer all other questions about election law at (512) 463-5650 or (800) 252-8683.

Texas House Bill 2626 requires school districts, regardless of size, to post campaign finance reports on their websites. The requirement relates to reports filed by board of trustee members, candidates for the board, and specific-purpose committees supporting, opposing, or assisting a candidate or member.

Important Note: Candidates and trustees have the option to select modified campaign finance reporting. Modified reporting excuses an opposed candidate from filing reports 30 days and 8 days before an election and 8 days before a runoff. An opposed candidate is eligible for modified reporting only if the candidate does not intend to exceed either $1,080 in contributions or $1,080 in expenditures (excluding filing fees) in connection with an election.
