NOTICE - 3rd Party Software/Vendors

Exercise caution when making use of 3rd party software and vendors.  All policy and enforcement decisions concerning the regulation of campaign finance is the ultimate responsibility of the Registry.  ​

Furthermore, the only method for filing campaign finance reports is through the Registry's election finance management system, which is provided free of charge to all candidates.  3rd parties do not have the ability to download your records directly into the Registry's filing system, regardless of what they might claim.  DO NOT SHARE YOUR LOG IN INFORMATION WITH 3rd PARTIES! 

Any questions regarding the application of Kentucky's campaign finance law or the filing of campaign finance reports should be directed to the Registry.  DO NOT RELY ON 3rd PARTIES.  The Registry's staff is here to assist you and answer all questions.

ATTENTION - Contribution Limit Increase

​KRS 121.150(6) and (10) requires certain contribution limits to be indexed for inflation every odd-numbered year using the preceding year's percent increase in the non-seasonally adjusted annual average Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI-U), U.S. City Average, All Items, for that year as published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics and rounded to the nearest hundred dollars.

Accordingly, contribution limits for Candidates, Permanent Committees, and Contributing Organizations increased $100 effective January 1, 2023.  This means the new contribution limit per election for Candidates, Permanent Committees, and Contributing Organizations is now $2,100.

This increase applies to the contribution limits for the 2023 Primary.


ALL candidates, committees, and contributing organizations are required to electronically submit all reports to the Registry.  ​This includes candidate notices of intent as well as committee registrations.  To get started with the electronic filing process, candidates should click on the "EFILE - FAQs" button below:
