This dataset contains cash and in-kind contributions made to Washington State Candidates and Political Committees for the last 10 years as reported to the PDC on forms C3, C4, Schedule C and their electronic filing equivalents. It does not include loans, pledges or any expenditures. For candidates, the number of years is determined by the year of the election, not necessarily the year the contribution was reported.

The PDC provides access to the original reports for the purpose of record verification.
