Election results

Every two years, the Commission releases a publication entitled Federal Elections, a compilation of the official, certified federal election results obtained from each state's election office and other official sources.  

The Federal Elections publication additionally provides the primary, runoff and general election results for the Senate, the House of Representatives and, when applicable, President. New publications aren't typically released until the summer following the year of the general election.

Observing elections

The FEC is not authorized to assist in the selection or accreditation of election observers for any U.S. election.
