Campaign Finance Forms


Candidates and their authorized political committees file reports in the office where their nomination documents are filed. If the candidate's reports are filed with the Secretary of the Commonwealth, a copy of the reports filed by the candidate and the authorized committee must be filed with the County Board of Elections in the county in which the candidate resides.

Please contact our office at 717-240-6385 or bureauofelections@ccpa.net if you require further information or should you have any other campaign finance related questions. You are also welcome to visit the Campaign Finance portion of the PA Department of State's website.


Postmarks


Postmarks are acceptable as proof of timely filing when the report is postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service no later than the day prior to the filing deadline.
