Campaign Reporting California is a national leader in promoting transparency and fairness in elections. The Political Reform Act requires candidates and committees to file campaign statements, by specified deadlines, disclosing contributions received and expenditures made. These documents are public and may be audited by the FPPC to ensure that voters are fully informed and improper practices prohibited. The City of Moreno Valley publishes campaign reports on its website.
If a candidate neither receives nor spends any money – other than for his/her nomination paper filing and a candidate statement - they need not file any campaign reporting forms.
