Campaign Finance Reporting

Oregon campaign finance law requires each candidate to establish a campaign account and file a Statement of Organization (SEL 220) and Campaign Account Information (SEL 223) designating a candidate committee within three business days of first receiving a contribution or making an expenditure - unless a candidate that serves as their own treasurer does not have an existing candidate committee and does not expect to receive or spend more than $750 during a calendar year.

The $750 includes personal funds spent for any campaign-related costs, such as the voters' pamphlet filing fee. If at any time during a calendar year the candidate exceeds $750 in either contributions or expenditures, the candidate must establish a campaign account and file a SEL 220 and SEL 223 within three days of exceeding the $750 threshold.
