Disclosure Deadlines

2017 Citywide Elections

All candidates running for city office are required to file disclosure statements with the CFB. You must disclose all contributions and expenditures in the disclosure statement due immediately after they are received/incurred in our financial disclosure web-based application, C-SMART. If contributions are not disclosed for the period in which they were received, they will not be eligible for matching funds.

Any candidate who fails to comply with the disclosure statement requirements may be subject to financial penalties. All official CFB notices from Audit and Legal will be sent electronically via C-Access.

Please note that the election year calendar is subject to change and only covers this current 4-year cycle. If a special election is called, it may have different disclosure deadlines.
