Welcome to the eCRIS Search
This page allows the public to search, browse and download information from campaign finance reports filed by committees with the SEEC’s Disclosure and Audit Unit. The term committees for purposes of this summary includes: Candidate committees, Exploratory committees, Party committees and Political Action committees (also known as PACs). We shall refer to all four distinct committee types as political committees in order to accent the political nature of their purpose in relationship to the financing of election campaigns for elective public office in Connecticut.
The eCRIS Search was developed by the SEEC as a result of its recognition that the public has the right to know the organizational structure and financing of election campaign activities. For this purpose, the Connecticut General Assembly created, as early as 1974, a bi-partisan and independent State Elections Enforcement Commission to ensure the integrity of the state's electoral process. The Commission is not a mere repository of documents. The Commission strives to offer fast and easy public access to the filings by committees.

In most instances the Commission staff is able to make these documents and information accessible for the public to search and view in a matter of hours.

In pursuit of SEEC’s mission to make information specific to political activities accessible in a user friendly manner to the public, we offer five distinct search options. Each option has been carefully designed to cater to the needs of its specific public audience. Our audience may include citizens generally interested in the democracy, researchers, reporters, students, politicians, political campaign staff, legislators, lobbyists and many others.


Search for and view documents filed by committees during the course of their existence. Search criteria include Committee Type, Form Type, Election Year, Committee Name, Report Type, Filed Year, Received Date range, and others.
Search for and review information for registered committees. Search criteria include Committee Name, Committee Type, Candidate/Chairperson Last Name, Treasurer/Deputy Treasurer Last Name, and others.
Search for and review expenditures made by committees which filed campaign finance reports electronically using eCRIS or whose paper report transactions were entered by the SEEC using a data entry module . These expenditures are often reported as expenses paid by committee. Search criteria include Disbursement Purpose, Committee (Payer) Name, Recipient (Payee) Name, Transaction Date range, Minimum and Maximum Amount(s), and others.
