California law includes voluntary spending limits for candidates running for state office (not federal office). Statewide constitutional office candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Controller, Treasurer, Attorney General, Insurance Commissioner, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Board of Equalization who choose to keep their campaign expenses under specified dollar amounts may buy space for a candidate statement (up to 250 words) in this voter guide.
The voluntary spending limit for candidates for Governor in the November 6, 2018, General Election is $14,588,000.
The voluntary spending limit for candidates for Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Controller, Treasurer, Attorney General, Insurance Commissioner, and Superintendent of Public Instruction in the November 6, 2018, General Election is $8,753,000.
The voluntary spending limit for candidates for the Board of Equalization in the November 6, 2018, General Election is $2,188,000.
In the candidate lists below, an asterisk (*) designates a statewide constitutional office candidate who accepted California’s voluntary campaign spending limits and therefore has the option to buy space for a candidate statement in this voter guide. (Some eligible candidates choose not to buy space for a candidate statement.)
Statewide constitutional office candidate statements are here.
