As candidates file for candidacy, the City Clerk must give them a copy of the Minnesota Campaign Manual.  The Manual explains campaign financial reporting and campaign practices requirements and prohibitions that apply to candidates and committees active on the City level of government.  Candidates filing for municipal office and committees acting to influence the nomination, election, or defeat of a candidate are required to file a campaign financial report with the City Clerk within 14 days after the candidate or committee receives contributions or makes disbursements of more than $750 in a calendar year.  In a year when the candidate's name appears on the ballot, additional reports are due as follows:

  • 10 days before the primary election
  • 10 days before the general election
  • 30 days after a general election
  • by January 31 of each year following the year when the initial report was filed

A final report may be filed any time after the candidate, committee, or corporation has settled all debts and disposed of all assets in excess of $100 in aggregate.

Except for the City Clerk's enforcement of the prohibitions in Minn. Stat. 211B.11 against campaigning in or around polling places, the City Clerk does not interpret or enforce the Fair Campaign Practices statutes.  Concerned citizens should take their complaints directly to the State of Minnesota Office of Administrative Hearings, 612-349-2539 or 612-341-7666 or e-mail .
