If your committee is organized to support or oppose a ballot measure such as a school, fire, or library levy or bond, we recommend that you register a separate campaign for each election.


Registering as a single-election committee means you only need to do one set-up, which will cover multiple years including the year in which your election will take place.


If you register as a continuing committee, you will be required to set up a new committee each calendar year. This requires that you carry forward cash from the previous year and go through the process of importing your contacts each year.

There is another advantage of registering as a single-election committee, especially if your committee needs to be active in two elections in the same calendar year (For example, if the first ballot measure did not pass).

Filing a separate registration for each election allows you to segregate contributions and expenses for each election. In this case you would close out the first single-election committee and re-register for the second single-election committee.

To register your campaign:
Go to the PDC political committee registration system and file a new registration for your campaign.  Don't amend an old registration. Make sure to file a new registration.
