Filing Campaign Finance Reports

Candidates registered with the Commission must file their campaign finance reports electronically. Information entered into the e-filing system is not made available to the public until the report is filed by the candidate or treasurer. To find out more about e-filing, please contact the Candidate Registrar assigned to the legislative district for the candidate.

Please visit Maine Campaign Finance to login or register as a candidate or committee member. 

24-Hour Reporting Period           

During this time, certain transactions must be reported with in 24 hours on the Commission's eFiling website:

  • Any single contribution of $1,000 or more
  • Any single loan of $1,000 or more
  • Any single expenditure of $1,000 or more
  • Any single unpaid debt or unpaid order of $1,000 or more

The report must be filed regardless of whether you have an invoice or have made a payment on a purchase. If you agree to or place an order with a vendor that is, or may be, $1,000 or more, you are required to report it as a debt on a 24-Hour Report in the 13 days before an election.

To file a 24-Hour Report, login to the eFiling website and enter the transaction. The system will automatically make a special 24-Hour report for you to file. The report must then be completely filed - just entering the transaction will not meet the filing requirements.
