Welcome to the New FEC Record

In an effort to provide more timely and user-friendly information, we have converted the Record from a print-based online publication to a wholly web-based format that better utilizes the medium. We’re excited to improve this already useful resource in a way that will help our readers keep up with FEC-related news better than ever.

The new Record will be a continuously updated news site, offering readers more timely and convenient access to campaign finance information. Articles will be posted as regulations are approved, advisory opinions are issued and court cases are decided. The articles themselves will include links that point to source documents and other related resources. The new Record will also be easier to search and navigate than the old PDF version. The latest headlines will appear on the main page, with links to the individual articles and to categories of articles, such as advisory opinions or court cases. Readers can sign-up to receive convenient e-mail updates any time a new article appears on the main page and/or within a particular category or categories.

Even as we implement these changes, we have not forgotten those who may prefer a monthly newsletter. At the beginning of each month, we will post a print-friendly compilation of all articles that appeared during the previous month on the Archive page. We will notify all registered committees and other Record subscribers via e-mail when the monthly compilation is available.

Additionally, as a service to readers who cannot access the Record on-line, we will offer copies of the monthly compilations through our automated fax system, Faxline, and will print and mail paper copies upon request. For more information, please contact the Information Division at 800/424-9530 or 202-694-1100 or email
