Transparency Dashboard for San Diego City elections

Organizations Involved in the Project


Background Information

Currently, campaign finance information for candidates running for local offices as well as money spent by outside groups to support or defeat them is not readily accessible to the public. When the amount of money being spent as well as the source is not known, voters feel disenfranchised by the election process. Making campaign finance data easy to find and read will increase public trust and confidence in the election process.
