OAE Rules

This is a collection of the documents and resources outlining the rules candidates must follow when running under Open and Accountable Elections

When candidates choose to run under Open and Accountable Elections, they must comply with specific rules in order to receive public matching funds. Many of the rules are covered in the Candidate Guide and in the mandatory training that potential candidates must take before they can raise funds. And our office encourages candidates to reach out to us with any questions that they may have, to which we will respond quickly and confidentially. 

Here are the documents that contain the rules, guidelines, and procedures of the Open and Accountable Elections program:
