Campaign Finance

Effective 5:00pm on Friday, January 22, 2021 the Board will no longer accept ANY reports or other submissions filed using the desktop EFS Software or through the New York State Board of Elections website. All campaign finance disclosure reports will need to be submitted through the new EFS Web Application available for use beginning at 8:00am on Monday, January 25, 2021. Please navigate to the “New Electronic Filing System (EFS) Web Application” tab to sign up for a training webinar and view training videos. 

Please click on the link below to be directed to the NYBOE Campaign Finance page for information concerning the NEW WEB-BASED SYSTEM and the dates for informational classes.


For 2021, the New York State Board of Elections Compliance Unit Training staff will conduct 12 Campaign Finance Update webinars to provide training to filers throughout New York State this spring and summer. The webinars occur on a variety of weekdays and at different times of the day to best accommodate as many potential attendees as possible.

While we appreciate the benefits of in-person seminars, we have learned over the past year that webinars are a very effective tool to provide training. We have been able to present to large groups of filers at once and answer questions successfully, while providing a safe environment during the COVID pandemic. Additionally, providing a schedule which includes a variety of days and times allows filers to register for and attend a webinar that is most convenient for them personally, rather than being limited geographically to when a seminar is scheduled at their local Board of Elections.

Each of these webinars will include an identical presentation on campaign financial disclosure requirements as defined in New York State Election Law. The presentation is made using Webex.

Pre-registration via EventBrite is required for all attendees. Please register here for Campaign Finance Update webinars:
