WHO MUST FILE

The following committees must file the Indiana Pre-Primary Report:

  • Principal campaign committees of congressional candidates 3 (including unopposed candidates and candidates whose names do not appear on the ballot) who seek election in the primary election must file the above reports and notices. 4
  • PACs and party committees filing on a quarterly basis in 2012 are subject to pre-election reporting if they make previously undisclosed contributions or expenditures (including independent expenditures) in connection with an election by the close of books of the applicable report(s).

Before a committee can stop filing with the FEC, it must file a termination report with the Commission. See 11 CFR 102.3. Committees must continue to file reports until the Commission notifies them in writing that their termination report has been accepted.

 

SUPPLEMENTAL FILING INFORMATION

 


FOOTNOTES:

1 These dates indicate the beginning and 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 up through the close of books for the first report due.

2 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) close of business on the last business day before the deadline.

3 Generally, an individual becomes a candidate for federal office (and thus triggers registration and reporting obligations) when his or her campaign exceeds $5,000 in either contributions or expenditures. If the campaign has not crossed the $5,000 threshold, it is not required to file reports. See 11 CFR 100.3(a) and 11 CFR 104.5(a).

4 If a candidate has more than one authorized committee, the principal campaign committee files a consolidated report on Form 3Z [PDF]. See 11 CFR 104.3(f).
