Disclosing elected officials on government websites

Websites sponsored by the government should include information about who serves as the Executive Officer, usually a Governor, Mayor or Superintendent and their staff.

The website should include:


  • The names of all elected officials and their biographies.
  • Contact information for all elected officials. Contact information should include a physical address, a telephone number and an e-mail address.
  • The website should include information about terms of office and date of next election.
  • If the elected official was elected in a partisan election, the website should indicate the party affiliation of each elected politician on its governing board.
  • Any financial disclosures and conflict-of-interest statements (if required by the government entity) should be posted online.
  • Committee appointments
  • Voting record
  • Salaries and Pension information
