Political Ad Information

Help us find out who's trying to influence your vote.

Use this site to get the latest information on political ads purchased at television stations around the country. These files provide the only information we have on who's behind some of the shadowy groups pouring money into the election. You can sort it by state and individual television market or search by date. This information is not complete but it is the most comprehensive data available. With your help, we're trying to fill the gaps by getting paper files from TV stations and by entering data. For information on how you can help, check here.
