Campaign Disclosure Forms and Filings

Political Reform Act Campaign Disclosure Requirements and Filings
Since 1974, California has had in place a campaign finance disclosure law requiring candidates and committees to make public their contributions and expenditures. All local elected officeholders, candidates for local elected offices, and committees in support or opposed to local candidates are required to file their campaign disclosure reports with the City Clerk at specified intervals. Hard copies of the campaign disclosure reports are available for review in the City Clerk's Office.

Form 470, Officeholder and Candidate Campaign Statement Short Form:
A candidate who does not anticipate raising or spending more than $2,000 may file a 470 "Short" Form to indicate his or her candidacy. If a candidate does not intend to raise or spend more than $2,000, this may be the only campaign finance reporting form they are required to file. 
Filing requirement: original and one copy to the City Clerk

Form 501, Candidate Intention Statement:
The Form 501 indicates a candidate's intent to seek elected office. It must be filed prior to the solicitation or receipt of any contribution, or the expenditure of any personal funds used for an election. A candidate for local office must file this form for each election, including reelection to the same office.
Filing requirement: original to the City Clerk

Form 410, Statement of Organization Recipient Committee:
A campaign committee must file a Form 410 within 10 days of raising or spending $2,000. The Form 410 indicates the candidate for which the committee was formed, the name and address of the campaign committee, the treasurer and the location (bank name and address) of the committee's bank account. When filing the form 410, include a $50 payment made payable to Secretary of State. If your committee has not yet reached the $2,000 threshold, mark the "not yet qualified" box. The $50 fee is requested at this time, but is not required until the group qualifies as a committee.
Filing requirement: original to Secretary of State and one copy to the City Clerk

Form 460, Recipient Committee Campaign Statement:
At semi-annual intervals during the year and more regularly prior to Election Day, candidates must file a Form 460 outlining the manner in which they raise and spend money in pursuit of elected office. The Form 460 indicates the name, address, occupation and employer of contributors as well as the name, address and purpose for which payments have been made. It also outlines how much was raised and spent during that specific reporting period and in total for the calendar year.
Filing requirement: original and one copy to the City Clerk

Form 700, Statement of Economic Interests:
The Political Reform Act requires most state and local government officials and employees to publicly disclose their personal assets and income.
