Welcome to the Citizens' Election Program

General Assembly Primary and General Elections


Chapter 157 of the Connecticut General Statutes establishes the Citizens’ Election Program (the “Program”), a voluntary program which provides clean elections financing to qualified candidates for statewide offices and the General Assembly. The Program is financed by the Citizens’ Election Fund, which receives funds primarily from the proceeds of the sale of abandoned property in the State of Connecticut’s custody, as well as voluntary donations. Candidates running for the office of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of the State, State Comptroller, State Treasurer, State Senator or State Representative in 2022 may join the Program. Although participation in the Program is voluntary, certain requirements apply to all candidate committees of candidates for statewide office or the General Assembly. For example, candidate committees are required to file forms indicating whether or not they will participate and will likely need to file mandatory supplemental campaign finance disclosure reports. The State Elections Enforcement Commission (the “Commission”) is the filing repository for all campaign forms and disclosure statements filed for statewide office and General Assembly candidates. The Commission is also responsible for administering the Program and monitoring compliance with Program requirements
