Sending holiday greetings

December 9, 2019

The same disclaimer rules that apply to election-related mailings also apply to holiday greeting cards, even if they do not solicit funds or contain express advocacy.

If a campaign sends out more than 500 holiday greetings (i.e., a mass mailing), it must include a disclaimer to inform recipients that it was paid for by the campaign committee. Similarly, a PAC or party committee that sends a holiday mass mailing must include a disclaimer that lets recipients know the committee paid for it, identifies the committee's full name and street address, phone number or web address, and states that the communication is not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.

For examples and additional information, see the Commission's page on disclaimers.
