All principal campaign committees of candidates who participate in the Florida Special Primary and Special General Elections shall file a 12-day Pre-Primary Report on January 2, 2014; a 12-day Pre-General Report on February 27, 2014; and a Post-General Report on April 10, 2014.

All principal campaign committees of candidates participating only in the Special Primary Election shall file a 12-day Pre-Primary Report on January 2, 2014. (See charts below for the closing date for each report.)
Unauthorized Committees (PACs and Party Committees)
Political committees filing on a semi-annual basis in 2013 or a quarterly basis in 2014 are subject to special election reporting if they make previously undisclosed contributions or expenditures in connection with the Florida Special Primary or Special General Elections by the close of books for the applicable report(s). (See chart below for the closing date for each report).
Committees filing monthly that make contributions or expenditures in connection with the Florida Special Primary or General Elections will continue to file according to the monthly reporting schedule.
Additional disclosure information in connection with the Florida Special Elections may be found on the FEC Web site at http://www.fec.gov/info/report_dates.shtml.
Disclosure of Lobbyist Bundling Activity
Principal campaign committees, party committees and Leadership PACs that are otherwise required to file reports in connection with the special elections must simultaneously file FEC Form 3L if they receive two or more bundled contributions from lobbyists/registrants or lobbyist/registrant PACs that aggregate in excess of the lobbyist bundling disclosure threshold during the special election reporting periods (see charts below for closing date of each period). 11 CFR 104.22(a)(5)(v) and (b).
The lobbyist bundling disclosure threshold for calendar year 2013 is $17,100. This threshold amount may change in 2014 based upon the annual cost of living adjustment (COLA). As soon as the adjusted threshold amount is available, the Commission will publish it in the Federal Register and post it on its Web site. 11 CFR 104.22(g) and 110.17(e)(2). For more information on these requirements, see Federal Register Notice 2009-03, 74 FR 7285 (February 17, 2009).
