The principal campaign committee of any candidate participating in a 2012 state primary, nominating convention or runoff election – even if unopposed – must also file a pre-election report 12 days prior to the primary, nominating convention or runoff. The principal campaign committee of a candidate participating in the general election must file pre- and post-general election reports. Separate notices will be sent to explain these additional reporting obligations. See 11 CFR 104.5(a)(2).

NOTE FOR COMMITTEES NOT REQUIRED TO FILE A POST-GENERAL ELECTION REPORT CHART II (see above)

For candidates who ran in 2012 but did not participate in the general election, the reporting period for the Year-End Report spans two election cycles. For this report only, committees should instead use the Post-Election Detailed Summary Page (FEC Form 3, Pages 5-8) [PDF]. Committees should not use the normal Detailed Summary Page.
