What are statements of economic interest?
Except for judicial candidates, individuals filing for an elective office must file a statement of economic interest. Candidates for state offices file with the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board (formerly Ethical Practices Board). Candidates for local offices file with their governing body (city council, school board, etc.). The statement must be filed within 14 days after filing an affidavit of candidacy and within 60 days of accepting employment.

A supplementary statement must be filed on April 15th of each year the individual remains in office.
