Committees being assessed a civil penalty will be sent an Assessment Letter, which includes the exact fine(s) owed by the committee, how the fines are calculated, and forms for appealing the penalty. A committee has 30-days following the date of the Assessment Letter in which to appeal an assessment.

If the committee chooses to appeal, it should complete two of three Civil Penalty Appeal Forms .

The Disclosure Law also provides hearing procedures for complaints filed alleging violations of the Law. Any person(s) that possesses substantiated information that a violation has occurred may file a complaint, using Form D-4. All complaint forms are filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections. For additional information regarding hearing procedures, please contact Board staff.
