FPPC-AdWATCH

The Enforcement Division will review all submitted advertisements for compliance and will actively pursue any potential violations.

Under California’s Political Reform Act (the “Act”), campaign advertisements must have disclaimers that identify the committee that paid for or authorized the communication. (http://www.fppc.ca.gov/learn/campaign-rules/campaign-advertising-requirements-restrictions.html) Our agency has launched our new pro-active campaign advertising compliance program in an effort to quickly and effectively address possible violations of the Act as it relates to mailers, doorhangers, signs, and electronic advertisements. You can now submit to us any form of political campaign advertising that you believe may not be in compliance with the law. Simply upload a copy of the materials, or just take a picture on your cell phone and send it to us. It’s that simple.
