An annual report must be filed by committees that remain open (i.e. those not yet terminated) no later than the first business day of the month in which the anniversary of the election occurs.

Note that special district candidates and candidate committees are not required to file disclosure reports until they have raised or spent more than $200 in the aggregate.

 

I have other questions about special district elections.

Questions about special district elections should be directed to the designated election official or the Department of Local Affairs.

 

I have questions about campaign finance disclosure reporting.

Questions about campaign finance disclosure reporting should be directed to our office.  You can contact us at 303-894-2200, ext. 6383, or at cpfhelp@sos.state.co.us.

 

What about major contributor notices and notices of independent expenditures? 

The 24 Hour Notice of Major Contributor, the 48 Hour Notice of Independent Expenditure, and the Electioneering Communication reports do not apply to the Regular Biennial Special District Election but may apply at other times during the election cycle. Refer to the Campaign Finance manual or the Secretary of State’s website for more information.
