To help candidates and their treasurers comply with the law, the Government Accountability Board has provided links to the state laws and administrative rules establishing campaign finance regulations. The Board has also prepared manuals and guidelines containing instructions for candidates and committees on how to register and report campaign finance information. These materials also summarize the major provisions of the law and give advice on how to report information using the Campaign Finance Information System.
Candidates for local offices can direct questions about campaign finance law or reporting requirements to their local filing officers. Candidates for state offices can direct questions to the Campaign Audit staff of the Government Accountability Board at 608-266-8005.
