More about this project

Using campaign finance reports collected by the New Mexico Secretary of State, The Openness Project lets you search and browse all political contributions, expenditures, and candidates in statewide and local New Mexico races.

Based on the work we did building Illinois Sunshine with the Illinois Campaign For Political Reform, this is the second campaign finance explorer DataMade has built. Interested in a campaign finance explorer for your state? Get in touch!
