Definition of “Candidate”

See O.C.G.A. 21-5-3(4) for a formal, legal definition of this term.

Are you a candidate?

There are a number of actions that will make a person be considered a “candidate” for the purposes of the Act

All of these actions confer candidate status. If you answered YES to any of the questions above, even if you have not yet formally qualified as a candidate, you are required to file Campaign Contribution Disclosure Reports. Please see next section on Filing Responsibilities for Candidates and Candidate Committees.

Do you need to form a Candidate Committee?

See About Candidate Committees [4] for more information
