Contribution Limits for County Legislature

New York State Election Law places limits on the amount of political contributions that can be made by individuals, family members and corporations. The contribution limit for family members is an aggregate limit from all the candidate’s family members (defined as a child, parent, grandparent, brother and sister or spouse of those persons.) A corporation may contribute up to a total of $5,000 in the aggregate in any calendar year. In order for a candidate’s authorized committee to qualify for a separate primary contribution limit, the candidate must be participating in a contested primary. The following limits are in place for County Legislature only.
