Running a political campaign means delving into your state’s laws, schedules, rules and regulations. Your campaign needs to stay up to date and compliant. Become intimately acquainted with your state’s online resources. At the very least, you’ll almost certainly have to file your statement of candidacy. This form varies from state to state. In the list below, you’ll be able to see what forms you may need to file. Keep in mind that some cities (L.A., New York City, San Francisco for example) may require you to file additional forms and/or have additional compliance requirements. It’s always a smart idea to consult a professional or, at least, discuss these issues with someone from the Secretary of State’s office. Political campaign compliance reporting is rarely simple.

As a courtesy, we’ve listed all 50 states’ websites, so you don’t have to use Google again (they aren’t always easy to find).

If you’re a brand new candidate, or are still considering whether to run, make sure to check out our How to Run a Political Campaign 101 series. Start with Deciding to Run for Political Office.

Good luck!
