State-level candidates who live in Fayette County (and committees supporting them) are also required to file paper copies of their entire state reports at the county Election Bureau by the published deadlines (no extensions).
Local and County candidates who have filed waivers do not have to file reports until they receive or spend $250 or more for their campaign, or form a committee, after which all reports must be filed on schedule.
On PA State forms, handbooks, etc. Local and County candidates please substitute the Fayette County Election Bureau for Department of State. Use the state forms but file in Uniontown, not Harrisburg. There is no online filing for Local and County candidates.
