Yes, campaign contribution laws apply to recall elections. Committees formed to support or oppose the recall and candidates seeking to replace the elected state officer must comply with campaign finance requirements. The Fair Political Practices Commission is responsible for providing advice about campaign finance issues. It has prepared a fact sheet specific to recall elections that expands on this information. See: www.fppc.ca.gov/media/factsheets.html. For more information, please contact the FPPC or visit www.fppc.ca.gov.
