Independent Expenditures Filing Deadlines

2021 Citywide Elections

All independent spenders must file disclosure statements with the CFB once their spending reaches a certain threshold.

For more information on this threshold, please consult the Independent Spender Guide.

No statement is required if there is no reportable activity during a disclosure period.

A “daily disclosure” statement is due within 24 hours of engaging in reportable activity during the two weeks before the primary and general elections.
