Campaign finance forms were due in mid January. Several office holders- particularly those who lost their bid for election or re-election did not have folders or forms on file.
Some who did not file had $0 on their last forms in April or October, but this does not fulfill the requirements of the election law. If candidates fail to file a form checking the box that this is a final form closing out their file, they have to continually file annual reports. Judge Humphrey is the only officeholder whose large file of annual reports indicates he seems aware of this “rule.”
