Campaign Finance:
Independent Expenditures (PC10)

An independent expenditure is an expenditure or account payable that is incurred for a communication in support of or in opposition to a clearly identified candidate or measure. The expenditure must not be made with the cooperation or with the prior consent of, or in consultation with, or at the request or suggestion of, a candidate or any agent or authorized committee of the candidate, or any political committee or agent of a political committee supporting or opposing a measure.

A person, other than a committee, who obligates or spends the person’s own funds of more than $750 for the calendar year to support or oppose any candidate or measure must file a Statement of Independent Expenditures (PC 10) with the Elections Division.

“Person” includes an individual, corporation, limited liability company, labor organization, association, firm, partnership, joint stock company, club, organization or other combination of individuals having collective capacity. It does not include a political or petition committee.

The deadline to file the PC 10 is not later than seven calendar days after the total amount of the independent expenditure exceeds $750 in a calendar year. The individual responsible for the penalty that is associated with filing a late PC 10 is the individual who signs the PC 10. If you need assistance contact the Elections Division at 503.986.1518.
