City of Falcon Heights Candidates/Committees - Campaign Finance Information

Governed by Minnesota Statutes, Chapters 211A & 211B (both PDF)

City Offices

  • Falcon Heights Mayor
  • Falcon Heights City Council
  • City of Falcon Heights ballot questions

Reports due in an election year
In a year when the candidate’s name or a ballot question appears on the ballot, the treasurer must file all reports remaining in the election season after the initial report has been filed. 

Reports due in a non-election year
In a year when the candidate’s name or ballot question is not on the ballot, and once the initial report has been filed, the treasurer must file only the year-end report.

Campaign Reports:

  • Initial report: one-time report due within 14 days of receiving contributions or making expenditures that exceed $750
  • Registration and Statement of Organization: due within 14 days after the committee receives contributions or makes expenditures greater than $750.  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 the primary election (August 2, 2013)
  • Pre-general report: due 10 days prior to general election (October 25, 2013)
  • Certification of Filing: due within 7 days after the general or special election (due by November 12, 2013)
  • Post-general report: due 30 days after general election (December 5, 2013)
  • 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)
