Flowchart: Do you need to file a FEC pre-general report?

cmdi | Wed May 18, 2022

Do you have another report due before the election? If you are an authorized candidate committee in the 2018 election OR file monthly, the answer is YES. If you are a quarterly filer, you may need some assistance with answering that question.

Pre-General Reports are due this Thursday, on October 25 and cover the period between October 1-17.

If you still have questions about the need to file, please review the flowchart below, read the FEC’s guide on Pre-General Reports or contact your FEC assigned RAD Analyst.
