We’re updating our Online Reporting of Campaign Activity (ORCA) software. 

This update – to version 1.207 – is the latest step in a process that began last year with the launch of the PDC’s new candidate and committee registration application.  

The new version makes technical changes necessary for eventually transitioning data into a web-based campaign reporting system for submitting C-3 and C-4 reports. That system is expected to replace ORCA in late 2021. 

Beginning Tuesday March 31, 2020, you can opt to update to a new version of the ORCA software. You will see a message in ORCA that alerts you to the new version, which will be available through a download from the PDC website.  

This update will become mandatory on April 28, 2020. Filers will be unable to use older versions of ORCA after that date. 

If you have questions, contact us at pdc@pdc.wa.gov or call 360-753-1111.
