New York City Voters Pass Campaign Finance Ballot Measure
New York City voters approved a ballot measure related to campaign finance on Tuesday.
Proposal 1 amends the City Charter by reducing contribution limits for all candidates and amending public matching funds for candidates participating in the public financing program.
Contributions for non-participating candidates will be reduced as follows:
- Citywide offices, from $5,100 to $3,500
- Borough President, from $3,950 to $2,500
- City Council, from $2,850 to $1,500
The amendments will apply to participating candidates who choose to have the amendments apply to their campaigns beginning with the 2021 primary election and would then apply to all candidates beginning in 2022.
