Financial Statements

On or before 2 p.m. on March 29, 2019, a candidate shall file with the Clerk with whom the nomination was filed a financial statement and auditor's report (see section below for further details), each in the prescribed form, reflecting the candidate's election campaign finances. Financial statements must be filed even if the candidate withdrew the nomination, did not actively campaign, was acclaimed, filed a Notice of Extension of Campaign (Form 6) or the nomination was not certified by the Town Clerk.

Supplementary Financial Statements

Any candidates who may be in a deficit position at the end of the campaign period (December 31, 2018) may choose to extend their campaign by filing a Notice of Extension of Campaign (Form 6) to the Town Clerk. The deadline for a candidate to file a Form 6 is 4:30 p.m. on December 31, 2018 to extend their campaign until July 2, 2019, to continue raising money.

Candidates who extend their campaign must file two financial statements:

  • The initial filing, which details all campaign finances from the day the nomination was filed until December 31, 2018 (due by 2 p.m. on March 29, 2019).
  • The supplementary filing, which details all campaign finances from the day the nomination was filed until July 2, 2019 (due by 2 p.m. on September 27, 2019).

Auditor’s Report

If a candidate's campaign contributions (including contributions from the candidate) or campaign expenses are greater than $10,000 the candidate must have their financial statement audited and include the auditor's report when they submit their financial statement to the Clerk. 

Note: An auditor's report must be prepared by an auditor licensed under the Public Accounting Act, 2004.
