seec: Disclosure Forms

Mandatory Electronic Filing Effective July 1, 2017

Pursuant to General Statutes 9-675, as amended by Public Act 2016-203, electronic filing will be mandatory for most committees registered with the Commission, effective July 1, 2017.  Specifically, the following committees will be required to file by eCRIS: (1) candidate committees and exploratory committees of candidates for statewide office, General Assembly, or judge of probate that raise or spend $1,000 or more; (2) all state central committees, legislative caucus committees and legislative leadership committees; (3) town committees and political committees registered with SEEC that raise or spend $1,000 or more during the current calendar year or in the preceding regular election cycle; and (4) any other committees or other persons (including individuals and businesses) who make or obligate to make an independent expenditure in excess of $1,000 on behalf of a statewide office, General Assembly, or judge of probate candidate. 

If you would like one-on-one eCRIS training, whether in person or telephonically, please promptly contact Elections Officer Sarah Clark at 860-256-2985 or seec.training@ct.gov.

If a committee is required to file electronically but the treasurer is able to demonstrate good cause for not being able to do so, General Statutes 9-675 permits the Commission to waive the electronic filing requirement.  If you believe that you are entitled to a waiver for good cause, please contact Commission staff at 860-256-2985 as soon as possible for further guidance. 

All paper filings submitted by treasurers and other persons who are required to electronically file on and after July 1, 2017 and who have not submitted a written request for a waiver shall be deemed insufficient and will result in penalties for non-filing.

ATTENTION PAPER FILERS

With the creation of new independent expenditure forms in light of Citizens United and further automation of our processes, the Commission issued Advisory Opinion 2014-02 which articulates that in order to be deemed a filing, a disclosure statement filed with the Commission must, at a minimum:

1. be signed and dated under penalty of false statement by the legally authorized person;

2. cover the applicable time period required by the applicable section or subsection of General Statutes 9-608, 9-601d or 9-712; and

3. be on the proper form required for that person for that filing.

Commencing with the filing due July 10, 2015 and all filings due thereafter, submissions that do not meet the above requirements will not be deemed sufficient filings and will result in penalties for late/non-filings if they are not timely fixed.  They will be date-stamped and made publicly available with the notation that they are insufficient.

Please note that committees may no longer attach printed spreadsheets or other information in lieu of completing any section of the prescribed forms (SEEC Form 20, SEEC Form 23, SEEC Form 30, SEEC Form 26, SEEC Form 40).
