Civil Penalty Delinquencies
The Governmental Ethics Commission works to provide the public with the timely and accurate information about the financing of political campaigns of candidates and officeholders, and to ensure compliance with the reporting provisions of the Campaign Finance Act. To this end, all Campaign Finance Receipts and Expenditures Reports go through a comprehensive desk review conducted by our staff.
A Failure to File Notice is sent for failure to file any report or amended report required by the Campaign Finance Act with the Secretary of State or county election officer at the time specified by law.
A Notification of Material Errors or Omissions is sent when a report is filed containing errors and/or omissions which distorts the campaign’s financial activity or contains a statutory violation.
A Civil Penalty is assessed after required reports are not submitted to the Commission.
A Civil Penalty Delinquency Letter is sent once a Civil Penalty is assessed and there is no response to the Commission.
