"View a Candidate or Committee Report"

All of the search fields are optional. However, due to the size of the searchable database IT IS RECOMMENDED YOU MAKE AT LEAST ONE SELECTION. If you are not sure of a search field or don’t want to narrow your search by that field leave the selection at “ALL”.

Search by CANDIDATE NAME when looking for filings by a specific candidate. First name and middle initial are optional, or use part of a name.

  • Use this option if you are searching for a candidate committee established by a single candidate. Search for the committee using the individual candidate name. Example: “Committee to Elect John Q Public” is searched by the last name “Public.”
  • If you are searching for a specific single candidate's filings and that candidate also files with a joint candidates committee you will be able to access both sets of reports when searching by the individual candidate’s name.

 

Use COMMITTEE NAME to search for a joint candidates committee or other election-related committee. Do not use this option if you are searching for the “Committee to Elect” or “Election Fund of” a single candidate (see Search by COMMITTEE NAME). When searching for a committee, other than a single candidate committee, and you know the spelling of the committee name, click on the Committee Name button and enter the name, or use part of a name.

Use Office to search for candidates running for a specific office(s). Selecting the office sought helps narrow your search if the candidate has/is running for more than one office.

  • The office of “JOINT CANDIDATES COMMITTEE” should only be selected when used in conjunction with other search criteria.

Use one of the two LOCATION search boxes to find those entities filing reports in a specific legislative district, county or municipality. Use Statewide for gubernatorial or statewide ballot question committees only. NOTE: using the location of “Statewide” will not return a result which has searched through the entire location data bank.

Use LOCATION ALL (STATEWIDE, LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT OR COUNTY) - to select either All or a specific location by selecting Statewide, a Legislative District, a County or Municipality within a County.

Or use LOCATION ALL (ALPHABETICAL) - to select either All or select from an alphabetical location list.

Use PARTY AFFILIATION to search by a specific party.

Use ELECTION TYPE to search within a specific election.

Use YEAR to search for entities within a specific election year.

Use the SORT ORDER options to return your requested information organized in a manner useful to you. The default Sort Order is alphabetical by candidate/committee name.

Candidate and Election Related Committees Filing Periods - Form Description and the Time Periods Covered

Form R-1 is the detailed activity report form used by candidates or committees expending in excess of the threshold. It is used for quarterly pre-election, election cycle and quarterly post-election reporting. When the Form R-1 is used for quarterly pre-election reporting, it is shown on the Internet under the Form column as R1-Q with an associated filing period. See the R1-Q Filing Period Table below. Starting with the year 2004, the Form R-1 when filed for a pre-election quarterly report will be shown on the Internet under the Form column as RQ-2004, any pre-election reports filed in 2005 will be shown as RQ-2005, RQ-2006 in 2006, etc. The associated filing periods are 1, 2, 3 or 4. See the Form RQ-2004 Table below.

When the Form R-1 is used for election cycle reporting it is shown on the Internet under the Form column as R with an associated filing period of 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. See the R-1 Filing Period Table.

The R1-Q quarterly report filing periods, due dates and periods covered for the 1999 Primary through the 2005 general elections are listed below.

(Because scanning of reports did not commence until the 1999 Primary election, quarterly reports filed prior to the year 1999 for any election held in 1999 are not available electronically. Additionally, the quarterly schedule for the year 1999 and prior is not included here.)
