Federal Election Activity Dates

According to Federal Election Commission regulations concerning "federal election activity" (FEA), political party committees that conduct FEA must pay for this activity with federally permissible funds or, in some cases, may allocate the costs between federal and Levin funds or pay for them entirely with federal funds. For more information, please consult the regulations, referenced above, or download a copy of the FEC's Campaign Guide for Political Party Committees [PDF].

In order to help committees determine whether their planned voter identification, get-out-the-vote and generic campaign activities will constitute FEA, the charts below list the relevant time frames for each 2017-18 special election.
