ELECTORAL SYSTEM CONTRIBUTION
You may designate a contribution of five dollars ($5) or ten dollars ($10) if married and filing a joint return, to the account for the public financing of the electoral system. The first two dollars ($2) or four dollars ($4) if married and filing a joint return, up to a total of two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) collectively for all parties and the nonpartisan account, shall be allocated only to political parties which at the preceding general election, nominated a candidate for governor and such candidate polled at least 5 percent of the entire vote cast in the state for governor.
