After the election, your campaign’s relationship with the CFB continues through the completion of your post-election audit. All campaigns are subject to a post-election audit of their reporting and recordkeeping, regardless of participation in the Campaign Finance Program.
The post-election audit process is completed when the CFB issues your Final Audit Report or notifies you of potential penalties and/or public funds repayment obligations. This process requires regular communication between your campaign and the CFB.
Review this page for specific compliance requirements regarding post-election fundraising and your campaign's remaining bank balance.
Learn about the requirements and best practices in winding down your campaign promptly and efficiently. These resources can help you ensure compliance throughout the post-election period.
Newly elected candidates who wish to raise or spend funds for their transition and/or inauguration into office must create and register a TIE with the CFB before commencing any financial activity.
