Adobe Acrobat Reader MUST be used to fill-in and submit the Annual Lobbying Forms.
Even though there are other programs or software such as Foxit Pro and Nitro that will allow you to open, fill-in and save the Annual Lobbying Forms, the Commission has found that using these other programs will corrupt the Annual Lobbying Forms and make
them unable to be processed by the Commission’s system. Therefore, in order to complete the filing process without corrupting the forms, the Annual Lobbying Forms must first be opened and saved to your computer using the Official “Free Adobe Reader.” This free reader software can be downloaded from the Adobe site at get.adobe.com/reader/.
Only then can you download and use the forms without risk of having your filing rejected. Unfortunately, when forms
have already been opened in one of these other programs they will need to be discarded and new forms downloaded and opened only in Adobe Reader.
The Adobe Reader is compatible with all PCs and MACs. Download the Free Adobe Reader HERE >>.
To make sure you are using the correct program, after opening
the forms, the top left of the forms will show the form name followed by either Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat Pro (see images below)
