(Carson City, NV; January 15, 2014) – The Secretary of State’s AURORA campaign finance disclosure database will be down for approximately 30 minutes beginning at 10 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, Jan. 15. Aurora will be unavailable for candidate and public officer filings, as well as data searches, from approximately 10 to 10:30 p.m.
The downtime is estimated to be 30 minutes or less. During this network system downtime, users will not be able to access AURORA, work on a draft filing, or submit a filing. If using AURORA close to the 10 p.m. shutdown, be sure to save any work prior to 10 p.m. and then check to see if the system is back up no later than 10:30 p.m. The shutdown is a result of unanticipated maintenance to the statewide network system being performed by the system’s vendor.
The deadline to file the Annual Contributions and Expenses (C&E) Report and the Annual Financial Disclosure Statement (FDS) covering the year 2013 is 11:59 p.m. tonight. Candidates and public officers should anticipate filing prior to 10 p.m. or after 10:30 p.m. tonight to meet the deadline.
To access AURORA, visit www.nvsos.gov and click the AURORA icon on the homepage. Any questions regarding filing should be directed to the Elections Division at (775) 684-5705.
