+ This date indicates 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 as a political committee with the Commission up through the close of books for the first report due.

++Reports sent by Registered or Certified mail must be postmarked on or before the mailing deadline. Committees should keep the mailing receipt with its postmark as proof of filing. If using overnight mail, the delivery service must receive the report on or before the mailing deadline. "Overnight mail" includes Priority or Express Mail having a delivery confirmation, or an overnight delivery service with which the report is scheduled for next business day delivery and is recorded in the service's on-line tracking system. Reports filed by any other means must be received by the Commission (or Secretary of the Senate for Senate committees) before the close of business on the last business day before the filing deadline.

* States holding 2010 Senate elections.

** Filed by candidate committees only. 48-Hour Notices are required if the campaign committee receives any contribution (including in-kind gifts or advances of goods or services; loans from the candidate or other non-bank sources; and guarantees or endorsements of bank loans to the candidate or committee) of $1,000 or more per source, during the applicable period.

1 Notice that the registered/certified & overnight mailing deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday. The report should be postmarked before that date.

2 The July Quarterly Report is waived for committees filing the Georgia and Oklahoma Pre-Primary Reports. See 11 CFR 104.5(a)(1)(iii) and (c)(1)(i)(C).

3 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.

4 Committees should file a consolidated Year-End & Pre-Primary Report by the filing deadline of the Pre-Primary report, January 21, 2010.

Note for PACs & Parties: Since disclosing financial activity from two different calendar years on one report would conflict with the calendar year aggregation requirements for unauthorized committees, PACs and parties filing the consolidated report are to do so on separate forms--the form disclosing 2009 activity labeled as the Year-End Report; the other, covering only 2010 activity, as the Pre-Primary Report.

5 The mailing deadline is the same as the filing deadline because the computed mailing deadline would fall one day before the primary is held.
