Candidates and their committees, if any, are required by statute to file periodic campaign finance reports and are also responsible for the legality, validity, completeness and accuracy of their reports. The following is a schedule for filing reports. These reports must be filed whether or not money has been raised or expended during the reporting period and whether or not the candidate is nominated or elected. Reports are due to the local election official by the close of business on the day the report is due. All forms, as well as filing software, are available on the OCPF website.
Due on or before the 8th day preceding the city or town general election, complete from the day following the ending date of the last report filed through 10 days before the due date.
Due on or before the 30th day following the general election complete from the day following the ending date of the last report filed through 10 days before the due date. This report may be considered a final report if the candidate/committee has no cash balance, assets or outstanding liabilities. Most spring elections occur in towns.
Due on or before January 20 in the year following, complete from the day following the ending date of the last report filed through December 31. This year-end report must also be filed every year so long as a committee is in existence, or a candidate maintains a campaign fund, has outstanding debts, or is an incumbent elected official.
The Town Clerk's Office publishes campaign finance reports for candidates reporting any activity.
