So, the packet of information that the FEC sent me got here today. I was waiting to file my Form 2 (Statement of Candidacy) until it got here, but it looks like there is nothing in it that I didn’t already have. Which is actually good. Everything in the packet is available online, so I sealed up my Form 2 and I’m sending it off tonight. Actually, hold on…
Ha! Interactive blogging! I just ran down to the corner and stuck the envelope in the mail. Here is proof :
Anyhow, it turns out that the packet contained this :
- Forms 1 and 2, with instructions, from here.
- This guide, printed out.
- This brochure.
- A list of state addresses to get copies of filings.
That’s all, so not a whole lot of help there, but it was nice of them to spend $3.50 to send it. If we weren’t internet savvy, and didn’t have copies of all of those things on our computer, they would have been a big help.
Also, as the FEC website says :
If you don’t find what you’re looking for on these pages, please contact the FEC’s Information Division, toll free at 800-424-9530 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
So, there you go. It’s done – I’ll post my FEC Number as soon as I get it.
