Commission meeting highlights: June 2022

The Commission voted to raise the threshold for expedited reporting of large, last-minute contributions to campaigns from $1,000 to $1,500. The change takes effect June 30, 2022, in time for the primary election’s special reporting period that begins July 26.

Under the rule, contributions that reach the threshold of $1,500 and occur within seven days of a primary election and 21 days of a general election must be separately reported.

C-3/C-4 due

File a C-3 report for each bank deposit made in the previous month and a C-4 report that covers the period through the previous month.(February and April ballot measure committees have different reporting deadlines.)
