How We Display Indiana Campaign Finance Data:

Campaign finance is complex, with reporting practices that vary widely from state to state.

In most cases, this does not mean that the data is incomplete, but rather, that entities are following Indiana’s unique reporting requirements. 

To help put the numbers in context, we’ve created a state-specific explanation of how we display information reported:
