Candidates, political committees, elected officials and lobbyists who electronically file reports with the Public Disclosure Commission can now get email alerts when a PDC filing system is experiencing an outage or other issue.
The alerts are available by signing up at the PDC's subscription page: www.pdc.wa.gov/engage/subscribe. Choose the "electronic filing updates and outages" subscription. (Be sure to also select the other topics that interest you so that you are not unsubscribed from any lists you find helpful.)
Filers experiencing technical difficulties also can check for outages on the PDC website at www.pdc.wa.gov. An alert is posted on the PDC homepage when an outage is ongoing. More information about past and current outages is available on the PDC's outage page and calendar.
The PDC is required by Engrossed Substitute House Bill 2938 to keep track of outages and to notify filers.
For questions or help getting signed up for alerts, email the PDC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
