Request an Investigation

Investigation Request Form link

Any person may request that the Commission undertake an investigation by submitting an Investigation Request Form or a signed written statement setting forth an allegation that constitutes a potential violation of the Campaign Reporting Act, the Lobbying Act, the Personal Financial Disclosure Act, or the Uniform Recall Election Law. The written statement should be as specific as possible, identifying the name of the subject candidate and/or entity, the election and/or calendar year, and as much detail and support for the allegation as is known. A request for investigation should be forwarded to the Commission to the attention of the Review and Investigation Section at P.O. Box 185, Trenton, New Jersey 08625-0185. The submitted request must provide the name and mailing address of the person submitting it, as well as a day and evening phone number.

At the conclusion of an investigation, the Commission may determine to take no further action, to issue a letter of correction, or to undertake formal complaint action for an alleged violation and seek imposition of civil penalties.

The Commission also initiates investigations as a result of staff review of reports filed with the Commission.
