Who must file

The following committees must file the Georgia Pre-Primary/Runoff Report(s):

  • Principal campaign committees of congressional candidates [5] (including unopposed candidates and candidates whose names do not appear on the ballot) who seek election in the primary election must file the above reports and notices. [6]
  • PACs and party committees filing on a quarterly basis in 2020 are subject to pre-election reporting if they make previously undisclosed contributions or expenditures (including independent expenditures) in connection with an election by the close of books of the applicable report(s).

Before a committee can stop filing with the FEC, it must file a termination report with the Commission. Committees must continue to file reports until the Commission notifies them in writing that their termination report has been accepted.

FOOTNOTES:

[1] On 04/09/2020, the Georgia Secretary of State changed the congressional primary election from 05/19/2020 to 06/09/2020. The change was in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

[2] These dates indicate the beginning and the end of the reporting period. A reporting period always begins the day after the closing date of the last report filed. If the committee is new and has not previously filed a report, the first report must cover all activity that occurred before the committee registered up through the close of books for the first report due.

[3] Notice that the registered/certified & overnight mailing deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday. The report should be postmarked before that date.

[4] On 04/09/2020, the Georgia Secretary of State changed the congressional primary runoff election from 07/21/2020 to 08/11/2020. The change was in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

[5] Generally, an individual becomes a candidate for federal office (and thus triggers registration and reporting obligations) when his or her campaign exceeds $5,000 in either contributions or expenditures. If the campaign has not crossed the $5,000 threshold, it is not required to file reports.

[6] If a candidate has more than one authorized committee, the principal campaign committee files a consolidated report onForm 3Zin addition to filing the report onForm 3.
