Advisory Opinions

Advisory Opinions are official Commission responses to questions regarding the application of Federal campaign finance law to specific factual situations. The Commission's Advisory Opinion brochure provides a complete description of the AO process and explains how to request an advisory opinion. Click on Help below for additional information. All questions and comments should be sent to pubrec@fec.gov.

To retrieve an associated document, search for the relevant AO, and all available associated documents will be displayed with the AO. Associated documents can only be searched using the Advanced Search function and currently associated documents are not available for all older AOs.
