Upcoming Filing Deadlines: 2016 Annual Statement due February 1, 2016 by 5:00 pm; closes on December 31, 2015. The statement is required by all Candidate Committees, Ballot Question Committees and Political Party committees.





Look for a new electronic filing application for filing original and amendments to the Statement of Organization for State filers. The electronic Statement of Organization application (e-SofO) will also be accessible via mobile devices. After electronically filing an original e-SofO for a new committee, the filer will simply need to forward a signed original to the Bureau of Elections.  This mail-in/hand delivery requirement will apply to certain types of amendments when filing an amended e-SofO. Existing committees can use the system to file amendments after requesting an access code to the data already on file.


Stay tuned. This is the first step in a series of upcoming changes to our campaign finance electronic filing system.
