In Montgomery County, public contributions are capped at $750,000 for county executive candidates, $500,000 for at-large council candidates and $125,000 for district council candidates. The matching system is based on a tiered formula. For example, if a county executive candidate receives two donations of $50, the candidate will receive $600. But if the candidate receives one donation of $100, the candidate will receive $500. The first $50 of each contribution is matched at a 6:1 ratio for county executive candidates and 4:1 ratio for council candidates. The rate decreases for each $50 donated. The second $50 is matched at a 4:1 ratio for county executive candidates and at a 3:1 ratio for council candidates. The final $50 is matched at a 2:1 ratio for county executive and council candidates.
