Political committees “close out” at the end of every calendar year.  In January, create a new committee using the setup wizard in ORCA, import your names and addresses from the previous year and enter your beginning bank balance as carry forward cash; File>Committee Information>Carry Forward Cash.  Click the green “plus” sign and enter the amount and a description. Your contact names, addresses, occupation and employer will import.  The transactions of contributions and expenditures will not import into the new year, because aggregates are tracked by calendar year. Be sure to select the election in which your committee is participating (File>Committee Information>C4 reporting periods).
