On Oct. 25 treasurers for candidates running for state and county office filed their pre-general election campaign reports. In addition, on Oct. 28, a report of last minute contributions will also be filed by any state or local candidate who receives any contributions in the amount of $300 or more. These reports are a matter of public record and are available for review in each candidate’s home county with his or her county election officer. Candidates for statewide office file their reports only with the Secretary of State. These reports contain the names of most contributors and the amounts of their contributions as well as information as to how campaign funds are spent. The office of the County Election Officer will have both state and local candidate receipts and expenditures reports available for review during their regular business hours. State candidate reports can be viewed on the Commission’s website at www.kansas.gov/ethics.
