Campaign funds in the general election are playing a vital role. There is an assumption that the higher campaign fund could obtain higher votes. A political party is gradually increasing campaign funds to win the votes. On the other side, people have scepticism that campaign funds will be used to buy votes, also known as money politics. People consider that the more money that is used for campaign funds will lead to fraud. The transparency of the campaign fund is important as a tool for voters to choose the right one. The General Elections Commission regulates that the political party has to submit a campaign fund report that consists of a source of funds and spending forms in Indonesia. The campaign fund report would disclose whether candidates rely on their own money or from other contributions. Relying too much on other contributions would lead to nepotism and fraud in the future, due to payback. The relationship between campaign funding and electoral success is a fruitful subject for scholars. The finding is there is a positive link between spending and electoral success. The other result is that a candidate share of the vote is not substantially affected by their campaign spending. There is a gap in the result that could be explored more, especially in Indonesia where democracy is growing. Indonesia is well known for political corruption that involves legislators, governors, and mayors. Based on the issue, the purpose of this research is to determine the relationship between votes, campaign funds and previous winning political parties in Indonesia for the general election during the period of 2009–2019. The analysis method used is regression. The result is a substantially significant relationship between vote and campaign funds and previous winning political parties for the general elections in Indonesia.
