City of Roseville Offices
- Roseville Mayor
- Roseville City Council
Reports due in an election year
An initial report must be filed within 14 days of a candidate receiving contributions or making expenditures exceeding $750 in the aggregate. Regardless of whether an initial report is submitted, all Roseville candidates and committees in an election year must submit a pre-primary, pre-general, post-general, and year-end report. In other words, even if a candidate or committee receives $0 and spends $0, the candidate still files these four reports with Ramsey County Elections.
Reports due in a non-election year
In a year when the candidate’s name or ballot question is not on the ballot, the treasurer must file only the year-end report. If a new committee is formed and the $750 threshold is reached, then an initial report must be filed within 14 days.
- Initial report: one-time report due within 14 days of receiving contributions or making expenditures that exceed $750.
- Statement of Organization: due within 14 days after the committee receives contributions or makes expenditures greater than $750, or with the pre-primary report, whichever comes first. The statement of organization contains basic committee information including name and address of committee, officers of the committee, bank location of committee funds, and liquid assets. Additional statements of organization must be filed any time there is a change in basic committee information (except liquid assets).
- Pre-primary report: due 10 days prior to primary
- Pre-general report: due 10 days prior to general election
- Certification of Filing: due within seven days after the general or special election.
- Post-general report: due 30 days after general election
- Year-end report: due on January 31 of each year
- Final report: Due when committee dissolves. Filing a final report ends all reporting requirements. A candidate or committee may file a final report when all debts have been paid and all assets in excess of $100 in the aggregate have been disposed of. For laws governing disposal of assets, see Minn. Stat. Ch. 211A.13 and Ch. 211B.12 subd (6)
Please note the reporting period is different for contributions over $50 than for contributions equal to and less than $50 and all expenditures.
The reporting period for all contributions received that in the aggregate are greater than $50 is the 365 days preceding the reporting period end date. The reporting period end date is always the end of the fifth day before the current report is due.
The reporting period for all contributions equal to or less than $50 is from the day following the last reporting date up to and including the fifth day before the current report is due.
The reporting period for all expenditures is from the day following the last reporting date up to and including the fifth day before the current report is due.
Information to be reported
Reports contain the following information:
- Summary of all contributions received, whether cash or in-kind, during the reporting period
- Summary of all expenditures made during the reporting period
- Names of persons making contributions more than $50 in the aggregate during the previous 365 days, address, employer or occupation if self-employed, the amount of the contribution, and the date the contribution was received
- Names of persons/businesses to whom expenditures were made, the purpose of the expenditure, the date of the expenditure, and the amount of the expenditure
- Current account balance
City of Roseville candidates and their committees may not accept contributions from individuals or committees that in the aggregate exceed $100 in non-election years and $300 in years the office is on the ballot.
Prohibited committee transfers
Candidates for city offices may not accept transfers from a principal campaign committee (such as a committee established for a candidate for a state office under Minn. Stat. Ch. 10A) and must not make contributions to a principal campaign committee, unless the contribution is made from the personal funds of the candidate.
