Campaign & Political Finance Reporting

Best advice? Communicate with your town clerk. He or she will keep you notified of your campaign finance filing responsibilities. Register HERE for the OCPF Reporter 7 Program. This is how you will file your mandatory OCPF Reports due 8 days before the election, 30 days after the election and in January. Please refer to the Local Candidates Guide for R7 Filers.

M.G.L. c. 55, s. 26 requires every municipality with a website to post, for public viewing, all campaign finance reports that show $1,000 or more in activity.
