The Ethics Act provides for a $250 fine for late filing of an SEI.
SEI Long Forms and No Change Forms-- The following SEI forms are available:
  1. 2019 Long Form. If there are changes since the date on which you last filed a 2019 SEI, or if you did not file a 2019 SEI, you must file the 2019 Long Form.

Filing Options-- 2019 Candidate SEI filers have 2 filing options:

  1. Electronic Filing. Filers can use the account previously used to file a 2019 electronic SEI (those who are currently serving),

    -Or, if a filer has not previously filed a 2019 electronic SEI, the filer may register for an account and then complete and submit the electronic filing data to the Commission online.
