Who spends money on our elections matters. Where they spend it matters too – school board races, state legislator races, and beyond. Money in political races impacts what information gets to voters and what doesn’t. Coloradans deserve to know where the money is coming from and why – that’s where we come in. We track down sources and study outcomes, reporting on what we find to ensure there is as much transparency in our election process as possible.
No matter how small the corruption, it makes a difference to our political system.

We also post documents collected from government entities, along with key filings and decisions from our lawsuits, on our Scribd page.
