  • State Political Action Committees (PACs)

    A political action committee, or “PAC”, is a political committee that is organized to support or oppose a candidate or a slate of candidates. Therefore, a PAC could be organized to support or oppose a particular candidate. It could also be organized to support or oppose a variety of candidates of a particular party or who support a particular cause. A PAC is separate from a candidate’s committee.

  • Independent Expenditure Political Action Committees (IEPACs)

    An IEPAC is a political action committee that receives contributions to make independent expenditures, and only makes independent expenditures. Unlike other PACs, independent expenditure PACs may receive contributions from individuals without limit, and from corporations and other entities that are otherwise prohibited from contributing to PACs pursuant to M.G.L.C.55, Section 8.

    Independent expenditure PACs are subject to all other requirements that apply to other PACs, including recordkeeping and reporting requirements.

  • House and Senate

    Seats in the State Senate and State House (General Court).

  • City Councilor (population over 65000)

    City Councilor in Boston, Brockton, Cambridge, Fall River, Framingham, Haverhill, Lawrence, Lowell, Lynn, Malden, New Bedford, Newton, Quincy, Somerville, Springfield, Waltham and Worcester.

  • State Ballot Question Committee

    A Ballot Question Committee is a person or group of people who raise or spend money to support or oppose a question put to voters at a state election.

    • If the question appears on a statewide ballot, the committee must organize with OCPF and file regular Campaign Finance Reports with this office.
    • If the question the committee was formed to support or oppose is put to voters in a municipal election, the committee must organize with their local election official: the city or town clerk or election commission.
    In either case, a ballot question committee is not intended to have an indefinite life; it must dissolve after the resolution of the question at the election.

  • Local Municipal Filers

    Local municipal filers may register for access to Reporter 7 to complete, print, sign and file reports with local election officials (See the link in the blue section below).

    Local municipal filers include all town candidates, and city candidates not running for mayor, or city council in cities with populations of 65,000 or less.

City candidates who organize and file reports with OCPF include ALL mayors as well as city councilors from cities that have over 65,000 residents. These candidates may use this system to organize with OCPF.

All other city candidates and ALL candidates for town office file reports with their local election official. These candidates must file a M101 organizational form with their municipal election official.
These candidates can use OCPF's reporting software, Reporter 7, to create and print campaign finance reports to file with their local election official(s), they can register to use it here.
