Campaign finance reports were required to be filed this week at the Vermont Secretary of State’s office. The March filing shows that there are no Republican challengers to any of the Democratically-held statewide elected officers.
Thursday was the deadline for candidates to file their post-election campaign finance reports with the Vermont Secretary of State's office. They indicate that incumbents spent far less than challengers and that Political Action Committees were not very successful in getting their candidates elected in the state.
Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos says he wants to require that city and town clerks report election results to his office on election night.
At the same time, Condos says he wants to streamline other steps in the reporting process to make it easier for clerks.
Condos said Tuesday marked the second part of a three-part test this year: He asked clerks to report results to his office in the March presidential primary, the state primary and on the night of the general election coming up in November.
