+ This date indicates the 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 as a political committee with the Commission up through the close of books for the first report due.

++Reports sent by Registered or Certified mail must be postmarked on or before the mailing deadline. Committees should keep the mailing receipt with its postmark as proof of filing. If using overnight mail, the delivery service must receive the report on or before the mailing deadline. "Overnight mail" includes Priority or Express Mail having a delivery confirmation, or an overnight delivery service with which the report is scheduled for next business day delivery and is recorded in the service's on-line tracking system. Reports filed by any other means must be received by the Commission (or Secretary of the Senate for Senate committees) before the close of business on the last business day before the filing deadline.

* States holding 2014 Senate elections.

** Filed by candidate committees only. 48-Hour Notices are required if the campaign committee receives any contribution (including in-kind gifts or advances of goods or services; loans from the candidate or other non-bank sources; and guarantees or endorsements of bank loans to the candidate or committee) of $1,000 or more per source, during the applicable period.

1 Notice that the registered/certified & overnight mailing deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday. The report should be postmarked before that date.

2 The July Quarterly Report is waived for committees filing the Delaware Independent Party Pre-Convention, Georgia Pre-Runoff , Oregon Independent Party Pre-Primary Oregon Working Families Party (Dist. 1, 3 and 4) Pre-Caucus and West Virginia Mountain Party Pre-Convention Reports. See 11 CFR 104.5(a)(1)(iii) and (c)(1)(i)(C).

3 Notice that this filing deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday. Filing deadlines are not extended when they fall on nonworking days. Accordingly, reports filed by methods other than registered, certified or overnight mail, or electronically, must be received before the Commission’s (or the Secretary of the Senate’s Public Records Office) close of business on the last business day before the deadline.

4 The April Quarterly Report is waived for committees filing the Indiana, Kansas, Utah and Virginia Pre-Convention Report. See 11 CFR 104.5(a)(1)(iii) and (c)(1)(i)(C).

5 In AO 2000-29 [PDF], the Commission determined that the last day to qualify for a position on the general election ballot in Louisiana--in this case 08/22/14--must be considered the primary election date for Louisiana candidates.  See 11 CFR 100.2(c)(4)(i).  The election for candidates seeking federal office is the general election scheduled for 11/04/14. Additionally, under state law if no candidate in the 11/04/14 general election receives over 50 percent of the vote, a runoff election will be held on 12/06/14.

6 The mailing deadline is the same as the filing deadline because the computed mailing deadline would fall one day before the primary is held.

7 The mailing deadline is the same as the filing deadline because the computed mailing deadline would fall one day before the general is held.
