Complaints, Violations, & Findings

All candidates and campaigns are required to follow the rules set forth in the Elections Code.  In the event that a candidate or campaign violates one of these rules, a complaint may be filed against that candidate or campaign by submitting the Complaint Form to the SEC.  Complaints will be investigated by the SEC and confirmed as a violation of the Elections Code, dismissed by a simple majority of SEC voting members, or deferred for later vote pending further investigation.

All complaints, SEC statements of ruling, and associated violations will be posted here as they arise.
