Special Election (May 5, 2020) Committees: C-6 or C-4 report due by March 31, 2020

Special election committees for the May 5, 2020 special election have a C-4 or C-6 due by March 31, 2020. The campaign finance report covers all transactions, if any, that occur from March 2, 2020 through March 26, 2020. 

Incidental political committees use Form C-4 to report financial activities; all other committees (political party, ballot issue, and independent (PAC) committees) use Form C-6 to detail all contributions received and expenditures made during a specific timeframe. C-4s and C-6s must be filed in CERS.

More details:

An incidental committee is a political committee which is not organized or maintained for the primary purpose of influencing elections but which may incidentally become a political committee by reason of making a contribution or expenditure to support or oppose a candidate and/or issue (Administrative Rules of Montana 44.10.327(2)(c)). 

Each county, municipal, and school district committee is required to file campaign finance reports if contributions received or expenditures made exceed $500 (in total).
