The Office of Campaign and Political Finance (OCPF) is responsible for administering Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 55, the campaign finance law. Chapter 55 is a comprehensive statute governing the financing of political campaigns in the Commonwealth at the state, county, district and municipal levels. City and town clerks, or local election officials, administer the campaign finance law for candidates and committees that file on the municipal level. Candidates who file locally, municipal ballot question committees, local party committees and locally-based political action committees file organizational forms on the local level. For more information see the OCPF's Campaign Finance Guide.
