Distributing voting records to the general public

A corporation or labor organization may prepare and distribute the voting records of Members of Congress to the general public. Disbursements for voting records are not contributions or expenditures as long as:

  • The voting records and any communications distributed with it do not expressly advocate the election or defeat of any clearly identified candidate(s) or the candidates of a clearly identified party; and
  • Decisions as to content and distribution of a voting record are made by the corporation or labor organization without coordinating with the candidate(s) or political party.
