The Federal Election Commission is an independent federal regulatory agency established by the Federal Election Campaign Act (the FECA). It is governed by six Commissioners appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. The FEC has exclusive jurisdiction for the administration, interpretation, and civil enforcement of the FECA, which requires disclosure of campaign contributions and expenditures by candidates for federal office and committees supporting those candidates, and imposes limitations on the amount and sources of such contributions. The legal work at the Commission regularly involves important and complex issues implicating the First Amendment.
The FEC is located in Penn Quarter, an area of northwest Washington, DC offering access to government agencies, residential living, casual and fine dining, shopping, a major sports arena, and several theaters. The FEC is located near several METRO subway and bus stations.
