Federal Election Activity periods: main page (2020)

For more information, please consult the previously referenced regulations or the FEC website for political party committees' making disbursements section.

NOTE: Some state filing deadlines for primary ballot access and party nominating convention dates are still pending. The chart will be updated as additional information becomes available.
