Fair Elections Program 2024

On May 5, 2018, D.C. Law 22-94, the “Fair Elections Amendment Act of 2018” (the Fair Elections Act), became effective in the District of Columbia. The “Fair Elections Act” provides for publicly funded political campaigns in the District of Columbia and establishes the Fair Elections Program within the Office of Campaign Finance (OCF). The Agency is responsible for the administration of the Program, including providing for the verification and audit of qualified small dollar contributions, authorizing payments from the Fair Elections Fund, the conduct of debates for each contested city-wide election in an election cycle for covered offices under the Act, the remission of funds and equipment purchased by the campaign, and the publication of reports after each cycle to review and evaluate the Program’s activity.

Most recently, the Office of Campaign Finance successfully administered the Fair Elections Program during the 2022 Election Cycle, the second election cycle of the Program. There were eleven (11) candidates certified as “participating candidates” in the Fair Elections Program for the November 8, 2022, General Election; thirty-one (31) Candidates certified as “participating candidates” in the June 21, 2022, Primary Election. The OCF authorized the disbursement of the total sum of $13,557,106.70 from the Elections Fund in Base Amount ($1,665,000.00) and Matching Payments ($11,892,106.70), to the forty-two (42) candidates who were certified in the Fair Elections Program to participate in the June 21, 2022 Primary Election and the November 8, 2022 General Election.

Of significance, the FEP candidates were elected and certified as Winners by the Board of Elections on November 30, 2022, in ten (10) of the thirteen (13) seats for covered offices available for election to Public Office in the November 8, 2022, General Election.

The upcoming 2024 Election Cycle will be the Third Election Cycle during which public financing will be made available. View the following information for the Fair Elections Program:
