Improvements are on the way!

We are developing a web-based reporting system for campaign finance. The system will provide the level of service and information candidates and the public have come to expectAs as candidate, you will be able to upload reports, see the status of your disclosures, and expect upcoming deadlines.  The public will be able to run reports with the data we get and see the status of candidate disclosures easily.
