Campaign Finance

Reporting Requirements

Title 21-A Sec. 1053-A requires candidates in municipalities with populations of 15,000 or more to file Campaign Finance reports. These reports are public records, and provide information on who is contributing to municipal campaigns and where the money is spent. Included below are the Campaign Finance Reports for the November 5, 2019 election. Candidates may be exempt from these reporting requirements if they do not intend to raise/expend funds on their campaign, including their own personal funds.
