Why Can’t I See the FEC Form 3?

Applies To: Federal Election Commission – Candidate Committees

If you are a Form 3 filer and can’t see the Form 3 as an available report in the dropdown, there are some additional data entry steps you’ll need to take.

First, you’ll want to ensure your Committee and Candidate records are set up. Ensure the following options and data entry are in the Candidate and Committee records.

Candidate Record

  • You must set Office Sought (or Office Held) to: US House of Representatives or US Senate.
  • Set Office Sought Jurisdiction to: Federal.

Committee Record

  • Set the Committee Info Type: Candidate and Jurisdiction: Federal.

We take these additional steps to ensure you are shown the correct report – either the Form 3 for House/Senate Candidates or the Form 3p for Presidential Candidates.
