Two Deadlines Approaching: File Notice of Intent and Apply for Certification

Candidates wishing to use the Open & Accountable Elections program for the 2020 regular election cycle must file their Notice of Intent by January 15, 2020 and their application for Certification by January 29, 2020. In order to collect qualifying contributions, candidates must first file their Notice of Intent to participate in the program AND take the mandatory training (email OpenElections@portlandoregon.gov to schedule a training). Once candidates collect enough qualifying contributions, they must apply for certification prior to the January 29, 2020 deadline. It takes time to collect the required number of and amount in qualifying contributions, so the program recommends that candidates file the Notice of Intent and get trained soon so they have time to collect enough in qualifying contributions in time to apply for certification!
