Candidate Financial Disclosure
Each candidate must file a Campaign Financial Disclosure Statement with the local County Election Commission or the State Registry of Election Finance, whichever applies.
Disclaimer: The Rutherford County Election Commission does NOT verify the accuracy of candidate campaign disclosures, it is the candidate's responsibility to file accurate campaign disclosures.
When to File: You will be notified by mail of filing deadlines. Financial disclosure forms do not apply to those positions that are part-time or the compensation is less than 100 dollars per month or as long as the candidate does not spend more than 500 dollars on his or her campaign.
First Reporting Period: Starts on the day you file your petition or the first day you spend or receive any money and continues through the tenth day before the election. This form must be filed seven (7) days before the election.
Second Reporting Period: Starts from the tenth (10) day before the election to forty-fifth (45) day after the election and must be filed by the forty-eighth (48) day after the election.
