Form a Political Action Committee
Filing a New Political Action or Petition Committee
To form a Political Action Committee (PAC), at least two individuals or a group of individuals – which includes but is not limited to corporations, clubs and associations – must be receiving contributions or making expenditures in support or opposition of a candidate, measure or political party.
If the intent of forming the PAC is to support or oppose a ballot measure, the committee cannot be formed before the Elections Division or county elections office assigns a measure number.
A petition committee is formed by the chief petitioner of an initiative, referendum or recall during the signature gathering phase.
How to File
File a new PAC or petition committee electronically through ORESTAR, the Oregon Elections System for Tracking and Reporting, or by submitting paper forms.
