Contributing Organization

​A "contributing organization" is a group of individuals that merely contributes to a candidate from time to time, from funds derived solely from within the group and not solicited or received from sources outside the group itself. Contributing organizations must report to the Registry when any contributions made by the group exceed $100. KRS 121.015(4)

Contributing Organization FAQ

Political Advertising is any advertisement advocating the election or defeat of any candidate, political party, or public issue. For example, Political Advertising would NOT include the announcement of a fish fry sponsored by a political organization unless the advertisement stated that the fish fry endorses a candidate.​
The Registry assigns a number to a candidate for each election. This number will be assigned each time the candidate notifies the Registry of his or her intent to run for office. (The Primary and General are separate elections.)
