Upcoming Filing Deadlines:
2015 October Quarterly Statement due by 5:00 pm on October 26, 2015; closes on October 20, 2015. The statement is required by all Independent and Political PACs, Candidate Committees, Ballot Question Committees and those Political Party committees not participating in any 2015 elections.
ELECTRONIC FILING FOR ORIGINAL AND AMENDED STATEMENTS OF ORGANIZATION
This fall 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.
