Law, Rules and Information for Filers
The SEEC began accepting voluntary submittals of electronically filed disclosure reports in 1995. Several committees helped us test this process by voluntarily submitting electronic files, they were:
November, 1995 Election
May, 1996 Election
November, 1996 Election
- Bob Rohan for City Council
November, 1997 Election
- Families Yes
- Citizens for Sherry Harris
- Neighbors for Nickels
- Friends of Jane Noland
Beginning in 1999 electronic filing became mandatory for most large City campaigns.
From 1995 to 2002 campaigns submitted electronic files as attachments to an email. These were then manually processed by SEEC staff.
Beginning in late 2002 campaigns began submitting electronic filings by uploading them using the SEEC's eFiling web application.
In early 2006 the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission introduced their Orca software. City campaigns began submitting electronic filings by connecting to an SEEC web service (via SOAP). Campaigns would use Orca or another client program designed to connect to our service.
