How do I File Statements?
Per Ordinance O2019-005, the City has implemented an electronic filing system called Campaign Docs to ensure that contributions and expenditures in city elections are disclosed and made available to the public. All committees who are required to file campaign disclosure statements must file their forms electronically through this system.
The eCampaign site provides information about filers who have officially formed committees. Access to the public portal and committee filer portals may be found below.
