Pending & Circulating Ballot Measures for November 2022 General Election

Below are lists of the top 10 contributors to committees supporting and/or opposing state ballot measures that raised at least $1,000,000 for the November 2022 general election.

The lists do not show the total contributions to each committee, only the top 10 contributors who have contributed more than $10,000 to a committee that has raised more than $1,000,000.

For itemized contributions to these committees ($100 or more) and expenditures made by the committees, please click on the name of the committee in the Contributions to Committees, formed to, support or oppose to Ballot Measure(s) tab, to go to the committee's Cal-Access page. 

For additional information on ballot measure financing, go to the CA Secretary of State’s ballot measure page.

The top 10 lists reflect the most recently available data. During the 90 days before an election the FPPC makes every attempt to ensure that the lists are updated within one business day of receiving new information. Otherwise, the top contributor lists are updated weekly. 

*A contributor whose name is marked with an asterisk made a contribution to a committee that simultaneously supported or opposed more than one potential ballot measure for the same election. Because of this it is not possible to determine the amount of the contribution that was spent specifically on the campaign for any particular measure. In these cases the contributions are listed for every ballot measure the committee has been formed to support or oppose. This results in the same contribution appearing multiple times - once for each ballot measure the committee supports or opposes.

# A contributor whose name is marked with the # symbol is a transfer of funds between two or more primarily formed committees for or against the same statewide ballot measure, in order to be fully transparent, there are two contribution totals that include all activity and activity minus the primary formed committees marked with the # symbol.
