To register a new candidate committee, file a Statement of Organization within 10 days after qualifying as a candidate committee. A candidate qualifies as a Candidate Committee if the candidate receives contributions or makes expenditures, in any combination, of at least $1,100 in connection with that candidacy.
Campaign finance reports must be filed in accordance with campaign finance laws as long as the candidate committee is active. All committees are subject to late filing penalties. Once a Committee Termination Statement is filed, campaign finance reports are no longer required to be filed.
