As of Wednesday afternoon, only seven of the eleven county council candidates had campaign finance reports posted on the secretary of state's site. The deadline for filing the reports elapsed at midnight Monday. The penalty for failure to file the report can cost a candidate for public office $50 per day. However, a spokesperson with the secretary of state's office suggests that the problem may rest more with the online reporting system rather than with candidates filing late.
Public Information Officer James Flores of the Secretary of State’s office confirmed this morning that because the change over to the new electronic financial reporting system has caused delays for some candidates, penalties will not be assessed this reporting period. “As of close of business Tuesday, we had 39 candidates who had not filed,” Flores said. “The majority of those candidates filed on Excel spreadsheets and we’ve been trying to transport those reports into our new system. For the next few days we are not going to fine anybody – our goal is to get everyone acclimated to the new system – so right now we are giving everyone the benefit of the doubt but we will be much more stringent come the May 10 reporting date.”
