ORCA (Online Reporting of Campaign Activity)

If you will be filing campaign finance reports using the PDC-supplied ORCA software, you can save a step and file or amend your campaign registration using ORCAThis is the best filing method for any campaign that expects to raise or spend more than $5,000, or accept a single contribution of more than $500.

Campaigns that don't expect to raise or spend more than $5,000 can register using the PDC's legacy system with limited functionality. Go here for existing accounts and here for new accounts.
