STANDALONE CANDIDATES (CANDIDATES WITHOUT COMMITTEES)
Standalone candidates are candidates without a candidate committee. You do not need to register a candidate committee if you will not solicit or accept contributions during your candidacy or if you will only spend your own money. You must register a committee if you accept money or other types of contributions from any other person/entity. Standalone candidates must report all expenditures to the municipal clerk.
A candidate committee accepts contributions and makes expenditures under the authority of a candidate. A candidate committee includes the candidate. The law does not require the committee to have additional members. A candidate can only have one active candidate committee. When considering running for office, you, your registered agent, fundraisers, and campaign manager should become familiar with the requirements of Article XXVIII of the Colorado Constitution, Title 1, Article 45, C.R.S., and the Rules Concerning Campaign and Political Finance.
