What's included here -- "Late" reporting of independent expenditures, which are required to be submitted within 48 (or in some periods 24) hours of the public distribution of some communications. These late reports are listed on the pages above, based upon the date received by the FEC.

Independent expenditures are expenditures for communications “expressly advocating the election or defeat
of a clearly identified candidate that are not made in cooperation, consultation, or concert with, or at the request
or suggestion of, a candidate, a candidate’s authorized committee, or their agents, or a political party or its agents.”

Once an individual’s or committee’s aggregate independent expenditures during a calendar year reach or exceed $10,000 with respect to a given election at any time up to and including the 20th day before an election, a 48 hour independent expenditure report must be filed with and received by the Commission by the end of the second day after the
independent expenditure communication is publicly distributed or otherwise publicly disseminated.

Once an individual’s or political committee’s aggregate independent expenditures reach or exceed $1,000 with respect to a given election, and are made fewer than 20 days, but more than 24 hours before an election, the independent expenditure must be reported to and received by the FEC within 24 hours of the time the communication is publicly
distributed or otherwise publicly disseminated.

All electronically filed reports of independent expenditures are included here. In addition, those reports submitted by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee are included once the paper filings have been received from the Secretary of the Senate and images are available on the web. (Senate campaign committees and other committees devoted exclusively to Senate campaigns file paper reports with the Secretary of the Senate. All other federal campaigns and committees who exceed $50,000 in activity must file electronically with the FEC.)

Note: Some individuals may also file these reports on paper, so this list may not represent a comprehensive list of all independent expenditure filings.

There's more information about Independent Expenditures in this brochure.
