April 26
Report covers the period 3/25/19 through designation of final report or 4/24/19 whichever is later. This report is not required by the following:

  • Unopposed candidates
  • Candidates following the modified reporting procedure who have not exceeded $500.00 in contributions/expenditures

Modified Reporting
If an opposed candidate does not expect to expend/receive in excess of $500.00 during the election campaign this procedure may be followed, eliminating the requirement of filing campaign contribution/expenditure reports 30 days and 8 days before an election and 8 days before a runoff. Should a candidate elect to follow the modified reporting procedure and exceeds $500.00 in contributions/expenditures before the 30th day before the election, he would automatically go back to regular reporting and must file reports 30 days and 8 days before the election. If the $500.00 limit is exceeded after the 30th day before the election, a report must be filed within 48 hours of exceeding the threshold and must continue filing according to the regular filing schedule.
