Tuesday, November 3, 2020, is Election Day. The Federal Election Commission (FEC) administers the federal campaign finance laws, but has no jurisdiction over the laws relating to voting, voter fraud and intimidation, ballot access or election results. For the convenience of voters, the appropriate federal or state agency to contact is listed on this page.
The Federal Election Commission administers and enforces the laws that govern the financing of elections for federal office—the U.S. House, Senate and President. Other election-related laws are not within the FEC's jurisdiction. Any person may file a complaint with the Commission if he or she believes a violation of the federal election campaign laws or FEC regulations has occurred or is about to occur. The Commission reviews every complaint filed. If the Commission finds that a violation occurred, possible outcomes can range from a letter reiterating compliance obligations to a conciliation agreement, which may include a monetary civil penalty. All FEC enforcement matters are kept confidential until they are resolved.
