Texas Counties Post Campaign-Finance Data Online

This Internet thing is handy, after all


'Bout time, Bexar County.

Beginning with the Jan. 15, 2013, filings, taxpayers in San Antonio and the rest of the county will be able to use their computers to review campaign finance reports required by law for every one of their elected officials and candidates for office, the San Antonio Express News reports.

This leaves Tarrant County alone among the state's five most populous counties in not providing comprehensive campaign information available online. Harris County, Dallas County, and Travis County have their own search engines.
