State laws require candidates running for public office to file campaign finance reports — one way or another — for their campaigns.
Candidates for municipal and school board races must file these contribution and expenditure reports for each quarter if their campaign has received contributions or has made expenditures of more than $1,000. Filing is based on a reporting schedule, though with whom they file depends on what race they are running.
Jan. 31 was the filing deadline for campaign contributions and expenditures by school board and municipal election candidates during 2020’s fourth quarter (Oct. 1-Dec. 31). Some candidates have yet to file that report, although it is not immediately clear if their campaigns reached the financial threshold that would require them to file reports.
Below are links to candidates’ campaign finance reports for some of the local races NonDoc has been previewing this election season. Primary Election Day is today, and a general election is slated for April 9.
