The Los Angeles Ethics Commission announced Friday that the fundraising window for citywide candidates in the regular 2022 primary election will open March 8, 2020.

The primary election is scheduled to take place March 8, 2022.

City law specifies the primary election fundraising window is 24 months for citywide races and 18 months for City Council and Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education races.

The fundraising window for City Council and LAUSD candidates in the regular 2022 primary election will open Sept. 8, 2020.

People interested in running for mayor, city attorney or city controller in the 2022 elections may not solicit or receive campaign contributions until they have filed required paperwork with the Ethics Commission.

Candidates who wish to file on March 8 may do so by emailing all required paperwork to and providing the originals in person or by postal mail.

City law imposes per-person campaign contribution limits on candidates. For the regular 2022 elections, a candidate for a citywide office may not solicit or accept more than $1,500 from a single person in a single election, according to the Ethics Commission.
