Candidate Committee Registration Information


An individual must register with the Government Accountability Board as soon as he/she forms the intent to become a candidate and before circulating nomination papers, receiving contributions, or spending money on the campaign.


Registration in CFIS has three steps:


1)     Enter information into the electronic GAB-1 registration form.  This includes candidate, treasurer, and bank account information. 

2)     After all information has been entered, you will proceed to the confirmation screen.  Review the information on the screen and verify that there are no errors or omissions.  Then submit the form.

3)     Print, sign, and mail the registration forms to the G.A.B.  In order to activate your committee, we need a paper copy of the original registration.   If you do not submit a paper copy, you could be subject to forfeitures or denial of ballot status.
