Special election reporting deadlines

PACs, candidates and political parties that plan to make contributions to candidates running for the 12th Congressional District should be reminded of additional reporting requirements associated with this special election. A special primary election is scheduled for May 8, 2018, and a special general election is scheduled for August 7, 2018. 

Campaign finance deadlines for these special elections do not coincide precisely with the deadlines that apply to all other federal activity this year. The first filing date related to the special election is April 26, 2018, and includes special election contributions made between April 1, 2018, and April 18, 2018.

If your political committee is planning to make contributions associated with the 12th Congressional District Special Election, please keep these deadlines in mind and work closely with your analyst or reporting service to make sure your reports are timely.
