Local filers can use R7 (Reporter 7) to create, print, sign and file campaign finance reports. Click here for a short instructional video.
To register, a local candidate can send his or her organizational form (M101) to OCPF, with “R7 only” written at the top.
If a candidate does not have a committee or a completed M101 form, he or she can complete the form and send it, unsigned, to OCPF. Click here for the M101 form.
The form can be sent by e-mail to Jason Tait at firstname.lastname@example.org. After registering, each candidate is issued a password and identification number, sent to them by e-mail. If the M101 form is sent to OCPF by traditional mail or by fax (617-727-6549), an e-mail address must be included.
"Local filers" include all town candidates, and all city candidates who don't e-file with OCPF.
