The new format of the campaign finance registration statement (CF-1) may come with questions from your local candidates. The following information regarding the registration statement is provided in the Local Candidate Campaign Finance Committee Manual:
 
Completing a Registration Statement

Section A.  General Information 
 
This section must be completed by all candidates and candidate committees. It contains the information identifying the candidate committee. All candidates are required to have a registered campaign committee, even if the candidate is the only person participating in the campaign and even if there is absolutely no money being spent on the race. 
 
A1. Candidate Committee/Committee/Conduit Name

The Ethics Commission recommends using something like “FIRST AND LAST NAME for OFFICE” for the committee name, so that any attribution/disclaimer statements placed on advertisements or yard signs make clear who paid for them. 

A2. Registrant Type

Local candidate committees should choose “Candidate.”

A3-13. Contact and Depository Institution Information

If the candidate committee does not have a separate address/PO box, phone number, email or depository account for the candidate committee, then the candidate should use their personal address, phone number, email and depository account. Depository accounts are required, even if absolutely no money is being spent. 

 A14-20. Treasurer Information

If the candidate is serving as their own treasurer, they should include their own contact information here.

A21-28. Other Officers

This section is intended to list other individuals that are helping on the campaign and is entirely optional. Local non-partisan candidates can list an individual here with an asterisk by their name which indicates they are to fill a vacancy if the candidate were to pass away. 

A29. Exemption 

Indicate whether the candidate committee will not accept contributions, make disbursements or incur obligations in aggregate of more than $2,000 in a calendar year and therefore is not required to file campaign finance reports. 

 Section B.  Candidate Committees
 
B1-3. Election Information

List the office sought, including the district and branch and the election date. If the race is nonpartisan, then “nonpartisan” can be listed in B2.

B4-10. Candidate Information

This section should list the personal contact information of the candidate. 

B11-12. Second Candidate Committee

If the candidate has an additional candidate committee, they should indicate it in this section. 

Section C-E: Other Committee Registration Information

Local candidate committees do not need to fill out information in Sections C-E because those sections are for Recall, Political Action, Independent Expenditure, Political Party, Legislative Campaign, Referenda Committees and Conduits. 

Section G. Certification

The candidate and treasurer certify the registration here with their signatures. If the candidate serves are the treasurer, they only need to sign once under “Candidate” in G4-G6.
