Information for Candidates

 CANDIDATE FLYER

You have decided to run for office. You will need to file for the office and you will also need to open a Campaign Finance Committee.  Check our election schedule for the filing dates for the office in which you wish to run. 

Your committee needs to be open within 10 days of you accepting or spending money to run.   You must be affiliated with a party for 90 days prior to the day you file for office in that party.  If you are not affiliated with a party, you must complete petitions in order to run for office.  

The North Carolina State Board of Elections published the Campaign Finance Manual 2022.  They also published a Candidates Guide and a Municipal Candidates Guide.   Please read both thoroughly.  Their website has lots of very helpful information here and other training information can be found here.


Opening your committee

The following forms need to be completed to open your Campaign Finance Committee:

    1. Statement of Organization (CRO-2100 A)
    2. Certification of Financial Accounts (CRO - 3500)
    3. Designation of Committee Funds (CRO - 3900)
    4. General Notice of Candidac

These forms can be mailed or hand delivered by the candidate only.  


You must designate a treasurer. You may be your own treasurer;  your spouse may not be your treasurer.  The   treasurer must attend a training.  The training schedule can be found here.


The State Board of Elections has created a guide with links of the campaign finance forms.  Please review carefully as well.
