    Lobby Electronic Filing Program (e-Lobby)

    E-Lobby

    The Lobby Electronic Filing Program (e-Lobby) is a convenient online filing option for Lobbyists and Lobbyist Agents required to file the Lobby Financial Report Summary and the Lobby Itemized Expenditure forms. The program can also be used to file amendments to the report forms. In addition, the program provides faster and more accurate information to the public.

    e-Lobby can NOT be used to register as a Lobbyist or Lobbyist Agent. A Lobby Registration form and any amendments to the registration, including changes to the addresses and adding or deleting employees, must be filed on paper and cannot be filed electronically at this time.

    Obtain a Password

    A unique password is needed for each registrant that wants to file electronically. To obtain a password:

    1. Select "Obtain a Password."
    2. Enter the Lobby ID assigned to the Registrant. Enter ONLY the number. DO NOT enter the A or L, the dash or the digit following the dash. For example: A001234-5 should be entered as 001234.
    3. Enter Signatory Last Name. Lobbyist should enter the last name of the individual designated to sign the reports. Individual Lobbyist Agents should enter the registrants last name.
    4. Enter the email address you where you would like the password sent. Please enter the email address twice.
    5. Select "Assign It" button.

    An email message will be sent containing the unique password. While the passwords do not expire, a new password for each registrant can be requested once per day. Each time a new password is requested, a postcard notification will be sent to the mailing address listed in our records stating that the password has been updated.

    Go to e-Lobby

    To file the Lobby Financial Report Summary electronically, use these instructions each time for a successful filing:

    1. Select "Go to e-Lobby."
    2. Enter the Lobby ID assigned to the Registrant. Enter ONLY the number. DO NOT enter the A or L, the dash or the digit following the dash. For example: A001234-5 should be entered as 001234.
    3. Enter the password. (See instructions above to request a password.)
    4. Enter the email address you where you would like the password sent. Please enter the email address twice.
    5. Select "Log-in" button to open the application.
    6. Complete the required fields.
    7. Select the "Submit" button.
    8. Re-enter your password.
    9. Select the "Submit" button again.

    A confirmation number and a copy of the report will be sent via email. The filing will be available on the Lobby Search page within 5 minutes. If a confirmation email is not received within 2 hours of submitting the report, please call the Bureau of Elections to confirm that your report was received.
