“Getting Started Now”

  • Review the Fair Political Practices Commission (“FPPC”) Campaign Disclosure Manual 2, which is available online at www.fppc.ca.gov.  This manual provides information on campaign disclosure rules as required under the Political Reform Act. If you have any questions, the FPPC provides advice by phone at 1-800-275-3772 or by e-mail at advice@fppc.ca.gov.

  • File FPPC Form 501 Candidate Intention Statement with the City Clerk before receiving contributions or spending your own funds (blank forms are available from the City Clerk or at www.fppc.ca.gov  and Campaign Disclosure Manual 2 gives detailed instructions for completing Form 501.)

  • Keep a record of all expenditures and contributions of $25 or more (refer to Campaign Disclosure Manual 2 for record-keeping guidelines).

  • Never accept or spend $100 or more in cash.

  • Open a bank account if you plan to receive contributions from others or you plan to expend personal funds totaling $2,000 or more.  All money used for campaign purposes, including the candidate’s personal funds, must be deposited in the campaign bank account prior to the expenditure. The only exception is the (optional) candidate statement deposit which will be paid at the time you file your Nomination Papers with the City Clerk.

  • File FPPC Form 410 Statement of Organization with the Secretary of State along with a filing fee of $50, made payable to the Secretary of State, within 10 days of receiving $2,000 in contributions.  File a copy of the form 410 with the City Clerk.  Blank forms are available from the City Clerk or at www.fppc.ca.gov and Campaign Disclosure Manual 2 gives detailed instructions for completing Form 410.

  • Once you have submitted your Form 410 to the Secretary of State (SOS), you can visit their website to find your committee ID number.  Enter the name of your committee in the search bar of the Cal-Access database.  If your ID number has been issued, the search results will show it next to your committee name.  If the system cannot find your ID number, the SOS may not have had time to issue it yet, or there was an error on the Form 410 and they have sent you a letter via USPS asking you to correct the error and re-submit the form.
