COMET Online Filing System
The Virginia Department of Elections (ELECT) provides, free of charge, an online application for candidates and political committees to file campaign finance reports. As of 2012, Committee Electronic Tracking – known as COMET – replaced the desktop VAFiling software, which had been in use since 1999. Electronic filers (E-filers) who employ 3rd party software vendors to prepare and create their reports must use COMET to upload their campaign finance reports to the Department of Elections public website. E-Filers who do not use third-party software must use COMET to prepare and submit their campaign finance reports. Find information on using this system.

The Loudoun County Electoral Board provides web access to all campaign finance reports after 5:00 pm on the day campaign finance reports are due. While we make every effort to post the reports as soon as possible, the exact time when the reports are posted will vary from deadline to deadline. View the Loudoun County Campaign Finance Reports.
