United States Electoral Process
An election is the process by which citizens select the thousands of men and women they want to run their government–at all levels.
In a democracy, government officials are chosen by the people and serve for a specific time called a term of office.

The Federal Electoral Commission
In 1975, Congress created the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to administer and enforce the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) – the statute that governs the financing of federal elections.
The duties of the FEC, which is an independent regulatory agency, are to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections.
