False and fictitious filings file description

The false and fictitious filings file contains a list of committees that have not verified their registration information.

The Federal Election Commission works to ensure all filings are accurate and complete. As part of that process, the Commission asks filers whose registration forms contain questionable information to verify its accuracy. The Commission separates the data from these filers' reports, and excludes it from database searches and the agency's official campaign finance statistics.
