Ethics Commission Forms for Candidates


The Equal Access to the Ballot Act (A61, R74, S2) took effect July 3, 2013. Now, there is no longer a requirement for a resident to file a paper copy of his Statement of Economic Interests (SEI) with the town/city clerk when the resident files to become a candidate in an election. Candidates must still file a Statement of Economic Interest (SEI) Form and Campaign Disclosure Form with the State Ethics Commission on their website; however, election officials have no requirement to ensure that the SEI has been filed with Ethics. Candidates may face fines for not filing an SEI and may not take office if they haven’t filed an SEI; however, filing of the SEI has no bearing on ballot access or the ability of a candidate to win an election.
