The tickets provided would be deemed an in-kind contribution, if they were given to a candidate’s committee by an individual or approved entity, said Derek Bowens, director of the New Hanover County Board of Elections.
Bowens said that the candidate “would need to report the fair market value of the tickets in the appropriate disclosure reports consistent with Article 22A of NCGS 163.”
“It should be noted that candidate committees may not receive direct or indirect contributions from any business entity, insurance company, corporation, professional association, or labor union,” Bowens said.
Bowens said that the individual contribution threshold is $5,200 per election.
“The fair market value of all in-kind contributions count against the individual threshold per election,” he said.
