In 2016, Berkeley voters adopted the Berkeley Fair Elections Act of 2016. This ballot measure created a voluntary program providing public matching funds for candidates running for the office of mayor or council member.

Participating candidates are eligible to receive a 6-to-1 match on a qualifying contribution of up to $50 (e.g., for a $50 qualifying contribution, a participating candidate receives $300 in public matching funds). 

Only contributions from Berkeley residents qualify for matching funds, but Non-Berkeley residents are still allowed to donate to the campaign. No contributions above $50 can be accepted from anyone and will be returned.
