A Few Reminders from the State OCPF

All local party committees will reorganize after the March presidential primary
Municipal-level party committees must reorganize after the March 1 presidential primary election before they can raise or spend money.

State law requires each committee (ward, town and city) to organize shortly after the primary to elect a chairperson, treasurer and secretary, according to the state’s Elections Division. There are more than 600 potential committees in the state from each party.

To complete the organization process, a committee will file an organizational form, available here. This form is filed in four locations — OCPF, Secretary of the Com- monwealth, the state party and the city or town clerk.
