Candidates and committees supporting or opposing local measures in the upcoming election are required to file campaign finance reports on a schedule set by the state’s Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) – but two candidates and one committee appear to have missed Thursday’s deadline.
In Nevada County, all filings are submitted electronically via a system called Netfile. Nevada County Elections requires all candidates to acknowledge their obligation to file required campaign disclosure forms. The candidate handbook provides a full calendar, contact information for both FPPC and Netfile. The FPPC provides calendars for local candidates, measures and committees supporting or opposing local candidates.
Second pre-election statement was due on Oct. 27th for all candidates and committees who raised or spent more than $2,000
Netfile’s publicly accessible repository lists all PAC, committees and candidate filings.
