Now Appearing at Your County Fair: FEC Disclaimers!

July 16, 2012

If your committee plans to maintain a booth or other presence at your county or state fair, 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.
