Are you thinking of running for office? What in the disclosure law determines that you are a candidate?
By doing any one of these actions, you have become a candidate:
Once you have become a candidate, you have two weeks to file a Personal Financial Affairs Statement (F-1) and a Candidate Registration (C-1) with the PDC. (An incumbent officeholder who has filed an F-1 earlier in the year does not need to file a second F-1 in the same year after becoming a candidate).
Visit the PDC File Online page for a directory of F-1, C-1, and other reports.
