New rules for presidential primary communications

January 21, 2020

New reporting requirements apply to multistate independent expenditures and electioneering communications made in connection with presidential primaries. IEs and ECs that are distributed in six or more states, but do not refer to a particular state, must be reported as a single communication.

For more information, check out our FEC Record summary of the new rules and our new multistate independent expenditures video. Detailed reporting instructions are available on our online reporting pages for PACs, parties, SSFs and other filers.
