I will not take any contributions for my campaign. Do I still need to open a committee?

Yes. All candidates are required to open a committee. 

  • Anything you purchase with personal funds for the campaign will count toward the $1,000 reporting threshold and must be tracked.
  • FOR CANDIDATE COMMITTEES ONLY – If a candidate committee will not raise any money nor spend any money other than the candidate’s personal funds they do not need to provide bank account information.
