WASHINGTON – The Federal Election Commission is requesting public comment on ways the agency can improve its report filing processes and public website.
“This public comment period will help us improve our report filing processes and access to the resources on our website as we prepare for the 2024 elections,” said Chair Dara Lindenbaum.
“Our public reports should be easy to file and easy to access,” said Commissioner Allen J. Dickerson. “We hope commentators will give us the benefit of their experience and expertise as we work to improve these important functions.”
The Commission on Friday issued a notification of request for comment to provide the public with an opportunity to identify concerns with the process for filing required disclosure reports and offer potential solutions and opportunities for improvement. The Commission also seeks comments on how to improve its website, including the organization, substance, and how to best provide the public with easily accessible information.
The Commission will use the comments received in response to its Request for Public Comment to be published in the Federal Register to help determine whether to change its policies or processes.
Comments must be in writing and submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The comment window will close 60 days after publication of the Notification of Request for Public Comment in the Federal Register.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that administers and enforces federal campaign finance laws. The FEC has jurisdiction over the financing of campaigns for the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the Presidency and the Vice Presidency. Established in 1975, the FEC is composed of six Commissioners who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.###
