Federal Election Activity periods for each state (2022)

According to Federal Election Commission regulations concerning "Federal Election Activity" (FEA), political party committees that conduct FEA must pay for this activity with federally permissible funds or, in some cases, may allocate the costs between federal and Levin funds or pay for them entirely with federal funds. For more information, please consult the regulations, referenced above, or see the FEC website for political party committees' making disbursements section.

In order to help committees determine whether their planned voter registration, voter identification, get-out-the-vote and generic campaign activities will constitute FEA, this chart lists the relevant FEA time frames for each state.

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