Federal Election Activity Dates for 2014

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 Levin 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 registration, voter identification, get-out-the-vote and generic campaign activities will constitute FEA, the chart below lists the relevant time frames for each state (including special elections).

NOTE: Some state filing deadlines for primary ballot access and party nominating convention dates are still pending. This chart will be updated as additional information becomes available.

Connecticut-Hawaii
