TRACCER FAQs

What is TRACCER?

The LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk's TRACCER (Track Registrar-Recorder's Automated Campaign Contributions Electronic Reports) allows candidates and elected officials to use the Internet to file their campaign disclosure statements online directly with the RR/CC. In addition, TRACCER permits the public to view and search these statements on the RR/CC's website.

Why should I use TRACCER?

TRACCER offers several advantages to candidates and officeholders who file their campaign disclosure statements online:

  • Cost: TRACCER is free. All you need is an Internet connection and Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer to access the TRACCER Website.
  • Security: Authorized access provides candidates and officeholders with the ability to create, modify, and print statements relating to the assigned account. The public does not have access to the statement until completed statement has been electronically submitted.
  • Reduced paper handling: Candidates and officeholders who file online reduce paper handling and reduce the possibility for data entry errors that may occur when the re-keying of information is required.
  • Compatibility with standard software: Committees who use third-party software to create files in the Cal-Access format can upload prepared statements directly to the TRACCER system.
Is filing online mandatory?

It is mandatory for all candidates, officeholders and campaign committees that receive a total of $10,000 or more in contributions, or makes a total of $10,000 or more in expenditures within the applicable reporting period.

How do I obtain a TRACCER login ID & password?

To request a login ID and password, the candidate, treasurer, or assistant treasurer should complete the TRACCER User Registration Form and return to the TRACCER Administrator.

To file a statement on TRACCER, the officeholder, candidate, candidate's official treasurer or assistant treasurer obtains a TRACCER login ID and password. Any one of these individuals can call or visit the RR/CC office to be issued a login ID and password. You can call the RR/CC at (562) 462-2339 between the business hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).

You may visit the RR/CC main office at 12400 E. Imperial Hwy., Room 2003, Norwalk, CA 90650. In addition, you can also contact the office by e-mail traccer@rrcc.lacounty.gov. No ID or password is necessary for an in-person visit. Visitors can simply view or search the information already submitted by filers.

What should I do if I lose my login ID & password?

You may either call or visit the RR/CC office to be reissued a new password; your login ID will remain the same. You can call the RR/CC at (562) 462-2339 between the business hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). You may also visit the RR/CC main office at 12400 E.

What are my software needs?

TRACCER is Internet-based, so no additional software is needed. You will need to have Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer to access the RR/CC homepage and the TRACCER.

What are the deadlines for filing online?

Whether you are filing by paper or online, you are required to file on or before the filing deadline. For specific deadlines, consult the campaign disclosure filing schedule. Otherwise, officeholders in non-election years are required to file on a semi-annual basis.

How does TRACCER work with my existing software?

If you already use software provided by a third party (such as Netfile or Statecraft) to manage your campaign contribution and expenditure activity, you may upload your Cal-Access file directly into TRACCER.

What if I decide not to file online?

If you are not required to electronically file, you may continue to file the required paper version of the CA Form 460 on or before the deadline. Once the $10,000 contribution and/or expenditure thresholds are met, electronic filing is required.

Failure to file a disclosure statement as required can result in substantial penalties – criminal, civil, and administrative. Additionally, failure to file on time can result in a late filing penalty of $10 per day. By law, there are no extensions for filing deadlines.

Am I still required to file a paper version of my campaign disclosure statement?

If you are required to electronically file, you are not required to file a paper format. Paper format submissions will not be accepted by the RR/CC when electronic filing is required.

If you are not required to electronically file, you are required to file the original paper format of the CA Form 460.
