Required training for treasurers
Anyone that signs campaign finance reports is required by law to receive treasurer training within three months of appointment and once every four years. This training can be taken in-person or online. Get specific information on how and when to received training from the State.
Electronic campaign reporting
Campaign finance laws now require certain committees to file campaign finance reports electronically. This includes candidates for local offices if the cumulative total for the election cycle exceeds $10,000 in contributions, in expenditures, or in loans. The free software provided by the State can be used to file electronically and perform many of the calculations for you.
