Now Appearing at Local Fall Festivals: FEC Disclaimers!

September 21, 2015

If your committee plans to maintain a booth or other presence at a local fall festival or other event, be sure the literature you are distributing contains the appropriate disclaimer statements. Some items, such as bumper stickers, pins and tee-shirts, are exempt. Other items, such as brochures and yard signs, need a printed statement, enclosed in a box, that indicates who has paid for the communication, and if paid for by a party committee or PAC, whether it was authorized by a campaign. For more information, see the brochure Special Notices on Political Ads and Solicitations.
