Campaign Finance


Campaign Finance Requirements


NY State Election Law requires candidates and their political committees to file Financial Disclosure Statements.

The New York State Board of Elections (NYSBOE) receives all filings of state parties and all political committees supporting candidates for local and state offices. In addition, all state senate and assembly candidates are required to file their disclosure with the State Board even if it is solely contained within a single county. The state further requires that these filings are done in an electronic format created by software available on the New York State Board of Elections website. For information on how to set up those campaign committees, forms and state software or to see information about their filings, visit the Treasurer / Candidate Duties page.

Effective September 2, 2009, from the amended regulation; filers that are required to file with NYSBOE and who actually do so, will not have to make a duplicate filing with the Nassau County Board of Elections. However, filers are still obligated to register their committees with the Nassau County Board of Elections. The NYSBOE periodic filings will satisfy their local filing obligation.

Campaign Committees

Candidates and political committees are required to file in accordance with the calendar set forth by the state.**

Information on how to set up campaign committees can be obtained by calling 516-571-2411, sending us an email, or visiting us at:

Campaign committees may be required to file with the IRS. Find more information on filing forms from the NYSBOE on their site or by downloading the handbook.
