Campaign Contribution Limit Calculations

The Campaign Reporting Act [1-19-25 to 1-19-3 NMSA 1978] contains provisions regarding contribution limits to and from candidates and political committees.  Section 1-19-34-7(D), includes a provision regarding incremental increases in contribution limits after each general election.  These incremental increases are based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) as measured by the U.S. Department of Labor.

As of July 1, 2019, the campaign contribution limits per election cycle are:

From an individual
(person or entity)
From a PAC
To a Non-Statewide Candidate $5,000 $5,000
To a Statewide Candidate $5,000 $5,000
To a PAC $5,000 $5,000

The contribution limits do not apply to contributions from a candidate’s personal funds to the candidate’s own campaign fund.
