Electronic filing of campaign finance reports requires that campaigns submit computer files that are formatted in a very specific way. The SEEC writes software to receive these files and append them to our database. This software must know how to interpret each line of the submitted files. To do this it must be able to rely on some sort of consistent formatting.

As of early 2007 all new campaigns must submit reports utilizing the Washington State PDC's Orca eFiling software, or software that replicates the standards embodied in the Orca client.

Orca eFiling software can be obtained from:
