Campaign Disclosure Forms
Notice of Obligation to File
The Illinois Campaign Disclosure law differs from that in many states in which one set of forms is used by candidates, another by party committees, and a third by political action committees.
Current Filing Activity
During each filing period, the number of active committees and the number of
, split by electronic and paper filings during that filing period, is displayed. This does not indicate who has filed, but rather how many reports have been filed.
License Application to Conduct a Raffle
allows a qualifying political committee to hold a raffle as a means to raise funds. Application must be made to the Board, and a
must be filed for each raffle held by the committee.
Committees being assessed a civil penalty will be sent an Assessment Letter, which includes the exact fine(s) owed by the committee, how the fines are calculated, and forms for appealing the penalty. A committee has 30-days following the date of the Assessment Letter in which to appeal an assessment.
Natural Person Independent Expenditure Disclosure
A natural person who makes an independent expenditure supporting or opposing a public official or candidate that, alone or in combination with any other independent expenditure made by that natural person supporting or opposing that public official or candidate during any 12-month period, equals an aggregate value of at least $3,000 must file a written disclosure with the State Board of Elections within 2 business days after making any expenditure that results in the natural person meeting or exceeding the $3,000 threshold. Each disclosure must identify the natural person, the public official or candidate supported or opposed, the date, amount, and nature of each independent expenditure, and the natural person’s occupation and employer.
Notification of In-Kind Contribution
The contributor of any in-kind contribution must notify the recipient of the in-kind within 5 business days on an
In-Kind Contribution Notification Form
The notification/certification must include the name and address of the contributor, the name and address of the vendor, the ascertainable/certified market value, and a description of the goods or services, and the date of the expenditure.
This form is never filed with the Board; it simply places responsibility on the contributor to give the recipient information in a timely manner, so that it can be properly reported.
Political Committee Report Filing Forms
The first form filed by a political committee after it reaches the $5,000 filing threshold is the D-1 Statement of Organization.
