What should a candidate expect when filing for office?

  • A Board of Elections staff member will work with each candidate to verify eligibility to file (must be a registered voter of the jurisdiction in which they wish to seek office and at least 21 years of age).
  • Filing paperwork will be completed and signed to be notarized (photo ID will be required for notarization).
  • The filing fee must be paid in the form of a check or money order (filing fees $50 and under may be paid in cash). Business or corporate checks are not accepted.
  • Candidates will be provided a filing packet containing campaign finance paperwork to open a political committee.

Campaign Finance

The law states that within ten days of any of the following events a candidate must open a political committee and appoint a treasurer:

  • Receiving or spending any money in support of their candidacy,
  • Filing a notice of candidacy, or
  • Making a public announcement of a definite intent to run for public office in a particular election.

All reports filed with the Brunswick County Board of Elections are available for public viewing.

Outside the candidate filing period, if you need to discuss Campaign Finance reporting we encourage having an appointment to ensure your needs are met in a timely manner.  To make an appointment please call our office or email Adrianne Cossey.
