Campaign Reports

Local Candidates and Public Officials are required to file their reports with the Local Filing Entity (Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections). Although Local Filers are assigned a Filer ID and password when they submit an eFiling PIN application, they are still required to file the original report with the Local Filing Officer. Although many local filers log into the eFiling system and file, reports are not considered “filed” until they are filed with the appropriate local filing entity.  O.C.G.A. § 21-5-34 (a)(3)(4)

Municipal Elections
