AGENCY:

Federal Election Commission.

ACTION:

Notice of filing dates for special election.

SUMMARY:

California has scheduled a special general election on April 8, 2008, to fill the U.S. House of Representatives seat in the Twelfth Congressional District held by the late Representative Tom Lantos. Under California law, a majority winner in a special election is declared elected. Should no candidate achieve a majority vote, a special runoff election will be held on June 3, 2008, among the top vote-getters of each qualified political party, including qualified independent candidates.

Committees participating in the California special elections are required to file pre- and post-election reports. Filing dates for these reports are affected by whether one or two elections are held.
