Disclosure of Electioneering Communications (Individuals and Other Unregistered Organizations)

As required by the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, the Federal Election Commission promulgated new electioneering communications rules governing television and radio communications that refer to a clearly identified federal candidate and are distributed within 30 days prior to a special primary election or 60 days prior to a special general election. 11 CFR 100.29. The statute and regulations require, among other things, that individuals and other groups not registered with the FEC who make electioneering communications costing more than $10,000 in the aggregate in a calendar year disclose that activity to the Commission within 24 hours of the distribution of the communication. See 11 CFR 104.20.

The 30-day electioneering communications period in connection with the New Jersey Special Primary runs from May 7, 2006 through June 6, 2006. The 60-day electioneering communications period in connection with the New Jersey Special General runs from September 8, 2006 through November 7, 2006.
