Independent Expenditures Filing Deadlines

2021 Citywide Elections

All independent spenders must file disclosure statements with the CFB once their spending reaches a certain threshold.

For more information on this threshold, please consult the Independent Spender Guide.

No statement is required if there is no reportable activity during a disclosure period.

A “daily disclosure” statement is due within 24 hours of engaging in reportable activity during the two weeks before the primary and general elections.

Due to recent and ongoing New York City Charter and legislative amendments, these filing deadlines are subject to change.
