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.
A unique password is needed for each registrant that wants to file electronically. To obtain a password:
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.
To file the Lobby Financial Report Summary electronically, use these instructions each time for a successful filing:
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 verify online the filing was received before calling the Bureau of Elections.
