Political Advertising
Campaign ads must satisfy the political advertising provisions of the disclosure law. Detailed information about these requirements may be found in the Political Advertising brochure. Generally, political ads of all types must identify the sponsor of the ad. In partisan campaigns, all ads must show the candidate's political party.

Keeping Books
The key to complying with campaign disclosure requirements is to keep detailed records of each contribution and expenditure and file reports on time. All campaign records must be kept for five years from the election. Campaign books include bank statements, deposit slips, cancelled checks, checkbook register and any ledgers, journals or lists identifying contributors (and the date and amount each has given) as well as receipts, invoices, copies of contribution checks, notes or documents regarding orders placed or loans, etc.
