Filing political party reports

After registration, political party committees file regularly with the FEC. Those reports are made available in the campaign finance data section of this website. 

How to file

Some committees are required to file electronically. All other committees can choose whether to file electronically or by paper.

What to file

Party committee filing requirements differ in election and non-election years. Election years are even numbered years.

Some forms are offered as both a web form and a PDF. With the exception of mandatory electronic filers, party committees can choose whether to file electronically or by paper. If a committee voluntarily files electronically, it must continue to do so for the remainder of the calendar year.

A committee’s obligation to file regular financial disclosure reports continues until the committee requests to terminate and that request is approved by the FEC.
