Important Information About Campaign Contributions

If you plan to run for a public office in Texas (except for a federal office), you must file an APPOINTMENT OF A CAMPAIGN TREASURER BY A CANDIDATE (FORM CTA) with the proper filing authority (the City Secretary for local elections) when you become a candidate even if you do not intend to accept campaign contributions or make campaign expenditures.

A “candidate” is a person who knowingly and willingly takes affirmative action for the purpose of gaining nomination or election to public office or for the purpose of satisfying financial obligations incurred by the person in connection with the campaign for nomination or election.

Examples of affirmative action include:

  • the filing of an application for a place on the ballot
  • the making of a public announcement of a definite intent to run for public office in a particular election, regardless of whether the specific office is mentioned in the announcement;
  • before a public announcement of intent, the making of a statement of definite intent to run for public office and the soliciting of support by letter or other mode of communication;
  • the soliciting or accepting of a campaign contribution or the making of a campaign expenditure;
