2012 campaign finance reports due by Nov. 16
Nov 4, 2012 - From staff reports
Municipal and county-level candidates file their reports with the county clerk, while others are required to e-file on Wyoming's Campaign Finance Information System.
Wyoming Secretary of State Max Maxfield reminds Wyoming political candidates, candidate committees, political party central committees, organizations, and political action committees (PACs) that state law requires they file a post-general election campaign finance disclosure report.
The reporting period begins on election day Tuesday, Nov. 6, and continues through Friday, Nov. 16. The law applies to all non-federal candidates.
According to Peggy Nighswonger, state election director, Wyoming law stipulates that the Receipt and Expenditure Report, also known as the R&E, is to be filed within 10 days following the election, this year no later than Friday, Nov. 16.
Municipal and county-level candidates file their reports with the county clerk, while legislative candidates, state parties, organizations, and PACs are required to e-file on Wyoming's Campaign Finance Information System, or WYCFIS.
"Although the electronic filing system is very intuitive and easy to use, our office stands ready to assist all legislative candidates, statewide candidates, state PACs and political parties in filing their reports," said Nighswonger.
The public may view and download campaign finance disclosure reports from statewide candidates, PACS, organizations and political parties from the website at https://www.wycampaignfinance.gov.
Candidates for federal office file with the Federal Election Com-mission, and the public may view those campaign finance reports at www.fec.gov.
