FILING PERIODS – FORM DESCRIPTION AND THE TIME PERIODS COVERED
Form R-1 is the detailed activity report form used by candidates or committees expending in excess of the threshold. It is used for quarterly pre-election, election cycle and quarterly post-election reporting. When the Form R-1 is used for quarterly pre-election reporting, it is shown on the Internet under the Form column as R1-Q with an associated filing period. See the R1-Q Filing Period Table below. Starting with the year 2004, the Form R-1 when filed for a pre-election quarterly report will be shown on the Internet under the Form column as RQ-2004, any pre-election reports filed in 2005 will be shown as RQ-2005, RQ-2006 in 2006, etc. The associated filing periods are 1, 2, 3 or 4. See the Form RQ-2004 Table below.
When the Form R-1 is used for election cycle reporting it is shown on the Internet under the Form column as R with an associated filing period of 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. See the R-1 Filing Period Table.
*Because a filer can have a filing obligation at any quarterly filing date, the information contained in their first report can either be from the beginning of that quarter or from the end of the last 20-day post-election reporting period.
The R1-Q quarterly report filing periods, due dates and periods covered for the 1999 Primary through the 2005 general elections are listed below.
(Because scanning of reports did not commence until the 1999 Primary election, quarterly reports filed prior to the year 1999 for any election held in 1999 are not available electronically. Additionally, the quarterly schedule for the year 1999 and prior is not included here.)
