Notice of filing dates for special election. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: California has scheduled a special general election on October 4, 2005, to fill the U.S. House of Representatives seat in the Forty-Eighth Congressional District vacated by Representative Christopher Cox. 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 December 6, 2005, 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. Mr. Kevin R. Salley, Information Division, 999 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20463; Telephone: (202) 694–1100; Toll Free (800) 424–9530. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Principal Campaign Committees All principal campaign committees of candidates who participate in the California Special General and Special Runoff Elections shall file a 12-day PreGeneral Report on September 22, 2005; a Pre-Runoff Report on November 24, 2005; and a Post-Runoff Report on January 5, 2006. (See chart below for the closing date for each report). Political committees filing on a semiannual basis in 2005 are subject to special election reporting if they make previously undisclosed contributions or expenditures in connection with the California Special General or Special Runoff 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 support candidates in the California Special General or Special Runoff Election should continue to file according to the monthly reporting schedule. 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 60 days prior to a special general election (including a special general runoff). 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 60-day electioneering communications period in connection with the California Special General runs from August 5, 2005 through October 4, 2005. The 60-day electioneering communications period in connection with the California Special Runoff runs from October 7, 2005 through December 6, 2005.
