Tennessee Election Finance Reporting Lacks Transparency For Those Not “In-The-Know”

Nov 2, 2022 | Political News

With new campaign finance “transparency” legislation passed in the last session of Tennessee General Assembly, political candidates for both state and local offices must now file major contributions and expenditures that occur during the final days before an election with the Tennessee Registry of Election Finance.

However, for those wishing to track candidates and their associated PACs campaign contributions and expenditures, there is a catch.

A simple search of the Online Campaign Finance database will not necessarily reveal all contributions and expenses.

This search only reveals those contributions and expenditures that are filed electronically.
