What are campaign financial reports?
Campaign financial reporting is governed by M.S. 211A. Candidates file their financial reports at the same location they filed their affidavits of candidacy.

If the candidate receives contributions or makes disbursements of more than $750, an initial finance report must be filed within 14 days of receiving or disbursing the $750.

During a year when the candidate’s name is on the ballot at least three finance reports must be filed:

10 days before the Primary
10 days before the General
30 days after the General
Annual reports are required by January 31 of each year following an election until a final financial report is filed.

A Certification of Filing must be filed no later than 7 days after the General Election. The certification states that all required financial reports have been submitted.
