Federal Election Activity Dates for 2009-10

According to Federal Election Commission regulations concerning "federal election activity" (FEA), political party committees that conduct FEA must pay for this activity with federally permissible funds or, in some cases, may allocate the costs between federal and Levin funds or pay for them entirely with Levin funds. For more information, please consult the regulations, referenced above, or download a copy of the FEC's Campaign Guide for Political Party Committees [PDF] and the Party Guide Supplement [PDF].

In order to help committees determine whether their planned voter identification, get-out-the-vote and generic campaign activities will constitute FEA, the chart below lists the relevant time frames for each 2009-10 special election.
