The principal campaign committee of a candidate participating in the general election must file pre- and post-general election reports. Separate notices will be sent to explain these additional reporting obligations. See 11 CFR 104.5(a)(2).

NOTE FOR COMMITTEES NOT REQUIRED TO FILE A POST-GENERAL ELECTION REPORT CHART II (see above)

For candidates who ran in 2018 but did not participate in the general election, the reporting period for the Year-End Report spans two election cycles. For this report only, committees should instead use the Post-Election Detailed Summary Page (FEC Form 3, Pages 5-8) [PDF]. Committees should not use the normal Detailed Summary Page.

FOOTNOTE:

1 These dates indicate the beginning and end of the reporting period. A reporting period always begins the day after the closing date of the last report filed. If the committee is new and has not previously filed a report, the first report must cover all activity that occurred before the committee registered up through the close of books for the first report due.
