Pre-election campaign finance reports are online

  • Published Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012, at 10:06 p.m.

Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta/.

The record: Pre-general-election campaign finance reports.

Why you’d want it: To learn more about how candidates paid for their campaigns, including who contributed and how candidates spent the money.

Where you get it: You can visit the clerk’s or election commissioner’s office in the county where you live. Candidates’ receipts and expenditures will be available during business hours. State candidate reports will be available on the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission’s website, www.kansas.gov/ethics.

How much the record will cost: The information is free. You may incur a charge if you visit an office for records and ask for copies.
