Filing candidate reports

After registration, authorized committees file regularly with the FEC. Those reports are made available in the campaign finance data section of this website.

How to file

There are two ways to file reports with the FEC: electronically or by paper.

With the exception of mandatory electronic filers, committees can choose whether to file electronically or by paper.

Note: committees that file by paper can install filing software, generate reports and then submit them by paper.

What to file

A committee’s obligation to file regular financial disclosure reports continues until the committee requests to terminate and that request is approved by the FEC.
