New election cycle begins

November 9, 2020

November 4, 2020, marked the beginning of a new election cycle for 2022 House campaigns, 2024 Presidential campaigns and 2026 Senate campaigns. For reporting purposes, campaigns aggregate receipts and disbursements on an election cycle basis. As a result, all 2020 campaigns must separate (both in their internal records and on their FEC reports) activity that occurred on or after November 4 from activity that occurred prior to that date, regardless of which election it relates to. The campaigns will disclose their separate election-cycle receipts and disbursements on the post-election detailed summary page required with the 30-Day Post-General Report, which is due December 3 (or for campaigns that were not in the general election, with the Year-End Report due January 31).
