Open Disclosure was created to empower Oakland voters with timely, accurate, and useful information about the role of money in local elections.

This site pulls data from the City of Oakland’s campaign finance reporting database to produce easy to understand graphs that clearly show the source of campaign funds and how they are being spent to sway election results. Our goal is to increase government transparency by revealing the potential influence behind local politics.

We hope to raise awareness, promote electoral accountability, and promote civic engagement and political participation by Oakland residents.
