FEC ANNOUNCES WEEKEND AND EXTENDED HOURS
WASHINGTON -- The Federal Election Commission has scheduled weekend and extended hours for the Public Records Office to accommodate press and public seeking review of campaign disclosure reports.

From July 15 through July 23 the hours are:

Weekdays 9 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Sunday 12 p.m. - 4 p.m.

April quarterly reports cover financial activity from April 1, 2004, through June 30, 2004. The reports are due by close of business Thursday, July 15, if sent regular mail or hand-delivered. If sent certified or registered mail, reports must be postmarked no later than midnight of the due date. Reports sent via express or priority mail or via overnight delivery service will also be considered timely filed if received by the delivery service by the filing date. Electronically filed reports must be received by midnight, eastern time, on the filing date. Senate campaigns file their reports with the Secretary of the Senate, who then forwards the reports to the FEC. All other committees file their reports with the FEC.

Digital images of campaign finance reports are now available on the FEC Website, www.fec.gov. All reports filed by PACs, political parties, Presidential, Senate, and House campaigns are available for viewing on the Web within 48 hours of the reports being received by the FEC.
