The Campaign Disclosure Law (AS 15.13) requires state and municipal candidates, and political groups, to file periodic, detailed reports disclosing all campaign contribution and expenditure activities. The campaign disclosure law directly limits the influence of contributors on candidates by limiting the size of campaign contributions.
If you are a first time electronic filer, please read Electronic Filing of APOC Documents prior to filing an APOC document or report.
Please review the information in the candidate packet, check for training opportunities, and be clear on the election reporting deadlines.
Candidate requirements and deadlines may vary based on the election they are participating in, elections for state office, the Anchorage municiple election, or other municiple elections.
If you have any questions about your filing responsibilities after you review this information, please call APOC.
