WHAT MAKES SOMEONE A CANDIDATE?
Any action a person takes to seek nomination or election to public office makes the person a
candidate for title 15 filing purposes. A candidate must file a campaign treasurer appointment
even if the candidate does not intend to accept campaign contributions or make campaign
expenditures. Once a person has filed a campaign treasurer appointment, he or she must file
periodic reports of contributions and expenditures as a candidate. The obligation to file reports as a
candidate lasts until the person files a final report.
Additionally, a person may not accept a campaign contribution or make a campaign expenditure
(even from personal funds) without a campaign treasurer appointment on file.
