Important Note on Ethics Forms – Concerns candidate filing for all offices
Candidates are required to file a Statement of Economic Interests and a Campaign Disclosure online with the State Ethics Commission at http://ethics.sc.gov. Failure to file these documents may result in a candidate fine but will not disqualify a candidate from the election. Contact the State Ethics Commission for more information.
Citizens no longer need to provide a paper printout of their Statement of Economic Interests (SEI) at the time of filing to become a candidate. Candidates are still required to file an SEI online during the candidate filing period with the State Ethics Commission; however, candidates are no longer required to present a copy of the SEI at the time of filing. The filing of the SEI has no bearing on a candidate’s ballot access. If a candidate fails to properly file an SEI (or campaign disclosure), the candidate may be fined by the State Ethics Commission but may not be denied ballot access. This change applies to all candidates in all elections.
