Candidates, groups or individuals who raise or spend more than $3,000 in any 12-month period in support of or in opposition to a candidate or question or public policy or for electioneering communication generally must file paperwork to create a political committee with the State Board of Elections. Political committees must then file periodic disclosure reports with the Board in Springfield or Chicago. There are no longer any disclosure filings with the County Clerk. This filing obligation continues until such time as a committee ceases operations, disposes of any remaining assets, and files an acceptable Final Report with the Board.
