California Automated Lobbying and Campaign Contribution & Expenditure Search System

Cal-Access is your window into the universe of campaign finance and lobbying at the California state government level.

Who contributes and how much do they give to the campaigns of candidates for statewide offices and the State Legislature?

Who finances campaigns for and against state ballot propositions?

Who pays for all those political ads on radio and television and for those political flyers crammed into your mailbox at election time?

Who pays to lobby state government on issues that affect all Californians?

Cal-Access provides the answers. Click on Campaign Finance or Lobbying Activity and follow the money trail. A new option allows you to search across filings and produce summary reports. Click on Advanced Reports to use the new searchable database features. Tips on how to use the system are at your fingertips.

The information is derived from electronically filed reports submitted by candidates, political action committees, political parties, ballot measure committees, major donors, lobbyists, lobbying firms, and lobbyist employers. Campaign organizations with receipts or expenditures of $50,000 or more and lobbying entities with payments of $5,000 or more are required to file electronically. For more information, visit
