Information About the Candidate Summary Page Download

The Bureau of Elections is pleased to provide the CFR Candidate Summary Page Download file.  The file contains all of the Summary Page data in our system in one convenient download.  The download is updated  each day with new candidate summary page data.  The file is in a comma separated value (CSV) format and can be easily up-loaded into  programs such as Microsoft Excel or Access.

The data consists of all of the electronically filed summary page data including amendments.  It also includes original paper reports that have been filed and key entered.  While all of the electronically filed data is available, not all of the data for the paper reports is represented in the file.  As reports are keyed entered, they are added to the file.

The file layout describing the data fields is provided below.
