Reporting Financial Activities During the Campaign
Candidates are responsible for keeping careful records of all contributions received and any expenditures made in support of their run for office.Simply put, any financial activities directed toward influencing an election must be reported.This not only includes the candidate, but committees and private individuals as well.
Opening a Committee
Often a candidate will authorize a committee to accept contributions and make expenditures on his or her behalf.This committee must have a chair and a treasurer. Forms for opening a committee are available at the Election Board office or can be obtained from this website.
If receipts and/or expenditures during a specific reporting period exceed $250, a report of these must be filed.If the amount is less than $250, a statement is filed in lieu of a report. Again, the report forms and statement forms are available in the Election Board office or can be obtained from this website.
