The Oakland Campaign Reform Act and state law require disclaimer language on certain campaign and political communications. The Oakland False Endorsement in Campaign Literature Act prohibits falsehoods that are knowingly or recklessly made in campaign literature during election cycles. Campaign signs may not be posted on public property.

For a comprehensive explanation of requirements, see our Oakland Campaign Reform Act Guide and the FPPC website to learn more.
