In yet another example of unprecedented transparency, for the first time ever, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose has provided the results of county post-election audits online.

Bringing Transparency to Local Campaign Finance

During the previous General Assembly, SB 107 was passed and signed into law. The legislation, championed by Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, was sponsored by State Senator Michael Rulli (R-Salem) and enhances transparency by allowing campaign finance reports for local candidates and committees to be filed electronically with county boards of elections. Previously, the only option for voters to obtain a report was to contact their county board of elections.

Beginning this month, and in advance of the upcoming campaign finance deadline on January 29th, any local candidate or committee may choose to use boefile.ohiosos.gov to submit their report. By doing so, they will make it far easier for voters to view campaign finance reports online. Check out Secretary LaRose‚Äôs video below.
