NEW HAMPSHIRE CAMPAIGN FINANCE SYSTEM
CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF BEING UPGRADED.
PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER ANY COMMITTEES FOR 2016
campaign finance system offers
numerous advantages to candidates, political committees, and the general public
seeking to file and review campaign finance information.
The system captures the
same information as the existing paper system, and is designed to be as “user
friendly” as possible, with appropriate prompts to facilitate use.
To use the system you must have a standard
browser - Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6.5 is recommended. This system does not
support netscape navigator.
A User Manual has been prepared to assist you in using
the system. Click here to download the User
http://www.sos.nh.gov/CFS Training Pages/USER GUIDE.pdf There are two parts to this user manual:
Part I - instructs how to register
A Candidate (This does NOT file you as a candidate!!)
A Candidate Committee
A Political Action Committee
for the purposes of using the Campaign Finance System to
record and file receipts and expenditures.
It also allows public users to have access and to view:
individual listings of contributors
filed statements of receipts and expenditures
list of registered committees
Accessibility to the statements of receipts and expenditures which have been
submitted is effective immediately by the filing deadlines. Since use of this
system is not mandatory, many entities may not use this system. Reports of
entities NOT using this system may be viewed at http://sos.nh.gov/CampFin.aspx
PART II - contains instruction for those
who have registered as candidates or committees. It guides them through
the process of:
changing registration information
viewing their own statement of receipts and expenditures
The first step for using the CFS is to register, which will include selection of a unique user name and
password. Once registered, you can utilize this user name and password (and
unique user id number which will be assigned when you register) to access your
account and enter contributions and expenditures. This can be done on either an
ongoing, “as you go” basis OR by working off-line on a downloadable template.
In either case, receipts and expenditure data will only become available to
public users after the appropriate deadlines.
Once registered, candidates, campaign
committees, and political action committees should take the time to review the
different aspects of the campaign finance system.
for using this new system. We hope that it makes registration and filing easier
for candidates and committees, while also providing citizens and interested
parties with improved access to this important public information. If you have
