The candidate is likely filing her reports on paper. Some candidates pick full reporting even though they plan to raise no more than $5,000. One reason could be that they plan to accept more than $500 from a single source, a circumstance which makes them ineligible for mini reporting. Electronic reporting is required only for those candidates who spend more than $5,000. If a candidate files her reports on paper, the information they contain will not be available in the database. But you still can view their reports under the "report" tab on the candidate page.
