Oregon Special General Election Reporting: 1st District
Oregon will hold a Special General Election to fill the U.S. House seat in Oregon’s 1st Congressional District vacated by Representative David Wu. The Special General will be held January 31, 2012.
Candidate committees involved in this election must follow the reporting schedule posted at http://www.fec.gov/pages/report_notices/2012/or01.shtml. Please note that the reporting period for the Post-General election report spans two election cycles. For this report only, authorized committees must use the Post-Election Detailed Summary Page rather than the normal Detailed Summary Page.
PACs and party committees that filed on a semi-annual schedule in 2011 and participate in this election must also follow the schedule above. Because this report spans two calendar years, PACs and party committees filing the Post-General must file this report on two separate forms: One form to cover 2011 activity, labeled as the Year-End Report; and the other form to cover only 2012 activity, labeled as the Pre-General Report. PACs and party committees that file monthly continue to file according to their regular filing schedule.
Timely Filing for Paper Filers
Registered and Certified Mail. Reports sent by registered or certified mail must be postmarked on or before the mailing deadline to be considered timely filed. A committee sending its reports by registered or certified mail should keep its mailing receipt with the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) postmark as proof of filing because the USPS does not keep complete records of items sent by certified mail. 2 U.S.C. §434(a)(5) and 11 CFR 100.19 and 104.5(e). Please note that the FEC does not have authority to extend filing deadlines, even when they fall on weekends or holidays.
Overnight Mail. Reports filed via overnight mail [fn1] will be considered timely filed if the report is received by the delivery service on or before the mailing deadline. A committee sending its reports by Express or Priority Mail, or by an overnight delivery service, should keep its proof of mailing or other means of transmittal of its reports. 2 U.S.C. §434(a)(5) and 11 CFR 100.19 and 104.5(e).
Other Means of Filing. Reports sent by other means—including first class mail and courier—must be received by the FEC before the Commission’s close of business on the filing deadline. 11 CFR 100.19 and 104.5(e).
Forms are available for downloading and printing at the FEC’s website (http://www.fec.gov/info/forms.shtml) and from FEC Faxline, the agency’s automated fax system (202/501-3413).
