A. Any elected officer, candidate, or committee required to file statements, reports or other documents (“statements”) as required by Chapter 4 of the Political Reform Act (California Government Code Section 84100 et seq.) may file such statements using the city clerk’s online system according to procedures established by the city clerk. These procedures shall ensure that the online system complies with the requirements set forth in Section 84615 of the Government Code. From and after January 1, 2020, elected officers, candidates and committees required to file statements must file such statements using the city clerk’s online system, unless exempt from the requirement to file online pursuant to Government Code Section 84615(a) because the officer, candidate or committee receives less than one thousand dollars in contributions and makes less than one thousand dollars in expenditures in a calendar year.

B. Once an elected officer, candidate, committee, or other person files a statement, report, or other document electronically pursuant to subsection A of this section, all future statements, reports, or other documents on behalf of that filer shall be filed electronically.

C. In any instance in which an original statement, report, or other document must be filed with the California Secretary of State and a copy of that statement, report, or other document is required to be filed with the city clerk, the filer may, but is not required to, file the copy electronically.

D. If the city clerk’s electronic system is not capable of accepting a particular type of statement, report, or other document, an elected officer, candidate, committee, or other person shall file that document with the city clerk in an alternative format. (Ord. 1022 § 2, 2018)
