Financial Disclosure Resources
The Fair Political Practices Commission (FFPC) requires candidates to submit specific campaign disclosure forms to the Elections Office before and after an election. Before each election we will post a schedule of when forms are due before and after that specific election. Please visit the FPPC website http://www.fppc.ca.gov/ for more information and for questions about your campaign.

- Form 460 (Recipient Committee Campaign Statement)
- Form 470 (Officeholder/Candidate Campaign Statement-Short Form and Form 470 Supplement)

The campaign disclosure and lobbying manuals are prepared by the FPPC to assist candidates, committees and lobbyists in complying with the Act’s numerous and often detailed rules. The manuals are written in a “user friendly” format and contain several examples, FAQs and Quick Tips. If a committee’s or lobbyist’s activity raises issues not discussed in the applicable manual, contact the FPPC for assistance.
All campaign and lobbying manuals can be found on the FPPC website: https://www.fppc.ca.gov/forms/all-fppc-manuals.html
