Getting Started — Political Action CommitteesDescription
Political Action Committees (PACs) are committees that raise and spend money to support or oppose one or more candidates, based upon stated principles or interests. PACs intended to support or oppose candidates for state office, such as statewide, legislative or county office candidates, organize and file periodic reports with OCPF. PACs concerned only with candidates in a specific city or town file organize and file with their local election official.
A People's Committee is a committee that organizes and operates as a PAC for at least six months, gives to five or more candidates, and receives contributions only from individuals, and agrees to abide by a contribution limit of $156 (indexed biennially) per individual in a calendar year.
