Under Minnesota State Statue 211A.02, candidates, committees and corporations that receive and/or spend more than $750 in a calendar year must file a Campaign Financial Report. Reports are due within 14 days of reaching the $750 threshold; 10 days before a primary or special election; 10 days before a general or special election; 30 days after a general or special election and by January 31 of each year following the year when an initial report was filed. If a person does not receive or spend $750 or more, no report is required except the certificate of filing.
