Best Practices for Filing FEC Amendments

Applies To: Federal Election Commission
When filing an amendment, your
amendment numbers should be in order. If this is your first amendment,
the amendment number should be 1 and any subsequent amendments should
follow in sequential order. While it is not required, we do suggest
numbering them starting at 1 and proceeding in numerical order as to not
cause confusion or errors in the future.

You will also need your Original FEC- Filing ID. This can be obtained from the FEC website for your committee. Search for your committee by name or
Filing ID in the search box at the top right hand corner. Once you’ve
located your committee’s page, scroll down to Filings and locate the
report in which you are trying to amend. This will show you the original
FEC-Filing ID, as well as if you’ve already filed an amendment and what
number the amendment number should be.

Please double-check the dates you are entering in ISP to ensure they match the date range of the original report filed.
