Article ID: 1114
Last updated: 09 Jan, 2013

REATTRIBUTION:
Transferring funds from one individual to another. This is often done when a check is received from one spouse and split between both.

REDESIGNATION:
Transferring funds from one election cycle to another. This is often done when either one check is received for at the contribution limit and split between Primary and General or if the check was received close to the election date and is moving from the General election cycle that just passed to the upcoming Primary cycle.

NOTE: This is only intended as a guide. This should NOT be taken as legal advice. Please consult the guidebook for your appropriate committee type and/or your analyst at the FEC.
