Registration thresholds for local party organizations

May 24, 2021

Local party organizations must register with the Commission if they: raise more than $5,000 in contributions (received to influence a federal election); spend more than $1,000 on federal contributions or expenditures; or spend in excess of $5,000 on exempt party activities. Once registered, local parties are presumed to be affiliated with the state party committee and share contribution limits with it and any other registered local committees.

For more information, please watch our Local Party Activity video on YouTube and visit our website. Additionally, please consider registering for the Commission's Webinar for Political Party Committees this Wednesday, May 26.
