The Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance (OCPF) provides excellent guidance on this issue and makes the entire process very user friendly. Municipal candidates who are interested in learning about the process should can view the Getting Started Guide. You will find links to organization forms, campaign finance report forms, and a summary of the campaign finance law as it appears in the OCPF guide booklet.
All candidates for elective office and sitting officials in elected office positions are required by law to file campaign finance reports every year. Active candidates have several additional deadlines that must be met during campaign season. Local officials file these reports with the Town Clerk. All reports are available for public inspection during normal business hours.
Towns are required to post campaign finance reports on the municipal website for local candidates who have had over $1000 in expenditures or collected over $1000 in revenue in a single reporting period. In Hanover, this practice began in 2013. Additionally, as an added best practice, Hanover began posting Campaign Finance Reports for all candidates and elected officials in the second half of 2014, regardless of the amount of expenditures or receipts.
