Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

HARRISBURG, Pa., May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele today announced the list of candidates and candidates' authorized committees that failed to file campaign finance reports for the reporting period ending May 10. 

A candidate or candidate's committee is considered noncompliant with the campaign finance reporting law if a late fee is owed or the required report has not been submitted for the current reporting cycle.

Once the candidate or authorized committee has met all obligations, the candidate or authorized committee will be removed from this list. 

A candidate or candidate's committee may have filed by the deadline, and thus be in compliance and not on this list, even though the report may not yet be posted to the campaign finance website.

The list of candidates and candidates authorized committees which failed to meet the reporting deadline is available by visiting the Department of State webpage, www.dos.state.pa.us, then clicking on "Campaign Finance Deadline Missed" under Hot Topics.   

The Department of State receives and files campaign finance reports for Judge of the Superior Court, Municipal Court, and Courts of Common Pleas.  All candidates on the primary election ballot who file with the Department of State must submit campaign finance reports for the period ending May 10, the second Friday before the primary election.

The department levies fines for late campaign finance reports.  However, other enforcement of campaign finance law violations is handled by the state attorney general's office.
