Due to a change in law, the following types of reports are now required in odd calendar years:

  • Electioneering Communication reports starting 60 days (September 8, 2017) before the Biennial School Election if the communication mentions school board candidates
  • 24 Hour Notice of Major Contributor report (starting 30 days before the election, October 8, 2017 through November 6, 2017)
  • 48 Hour Notice of Independent Expenditure report (starting 30 days before the election, October 8, 2017 through November 6, 2017)


Any PCs, SDCs, 527 POs, and IECs participating in the November 7, 2017, Biennial School Election must file disclosure reports according to the 2017 Biennial School Election schedule. You must notify your appropriate filing office to update your filing schedule immediately upon participating in the biennial school election.


Small-Scale Issue Committees (SSIC) are not required to file disclosure reports until they exceed $5,000 in activity. After filing an initial disclosure report and converting to an Issue Committee, they are subject to the disclosure requirements of 1-45-108(2), C.R.S.
