Campaign Finances


Chapter 54, Article IV of the City Code provides information on the city's financial rules and regulations that must be followed by all candidates, organizations, and committees involved in election campaigns.

Contribution and expenditure reporting requirements continue to apply until a committee files a termination report. Termination reports are filed when a committee has no outstanding debts or balance of campaign funds.




Registering a Committee

Candidate committees, issue committees, and policy committees are required to register with the City Clerk's office within 5 business days of becoming a committee. Click here for information on registering a committee.

An individual must organize a candidate committee upon becoming a candidate. A person is a candidate if they have publicly announced an intention to seek election, has circulated a nomination petition, or has received a contribution/made an expenditure to support their election to public office. A candidate may not organize, maintain, or control more than one candidate committee at any time.
