Federal Election Activity Dates for 2006

As required by the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (BCRA), the Federal Election Commission promulgated new 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 BCRA Campaign Guide Supplement [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.

A chronological listing of 2006 FEA Periods is available on the FEC Calendar.

Delaware - Iowa
