Welcome to the Citizens' Election Program




Qualifying Contribution Certification Forms

The Commission has prepared sample contribution certification forms which campaigns should use in order to collect all of the required contributor information. The Commission strongly recommends that treasurers use the applicable sample form for all contributors (Form A for participating General Assembly candidates, Form B for participating statewide office candidates). The Commission has also created a sample online Interface for credit card qualifying contributions as well.

The forms created by the Commission are designed to protect treasurers by providing for all of the information necessary to complete the required disclosure statements. The Commission strongly recommends that campaigns use its sample forms (or a form containing the same questions, definitions, and certifications). Failure to do so will likely result in continuances in grant application review and any committees changing the sample language issued by the Commission should therefore plan accordingly.

Financial Disclosure Forms

Pursuant to General Statutes § 9-675, as amended by Public Act 2016-203, electronic filing is mandatory for all candidate committees and exploratory committees of candidates for statewide office or General Assembly that raise or spend $1,000 or more. Candidates intending to get a grant from the Citizens’ Election Program must raise over $1,000 and will therefore be required to electronically file unless formally granted a waiver for good cause. Provided below are paper versions of the required disclosure statement – please proceed to eCRIS to file electronically.
