FEC Reporting Made Easy (or at least easier), Part I

Benjamin A. Katz

Filing campaign statements with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) or any government agency can be a nerve racking and mentally exhausting experience. Having to itemize nearly every transaction, complete complicated forms and follow obscure rules make reporting a challenging job.

The frequency of reports, rapid turnaround required during election season and requirement for exact reporting makes campaign reporting scary for even the most seasoned professional accountant.

With all of that said, after working for years with many clients, we have come up with some best pract

The Personal Power of the Pen

Marnie Turman

Ah, the power of the pen! 

A personally signed letter or note can push the undecided voter into your corner, reinforce the commitment of a voter pledged to you, or cast a shadow of a doubt in the mind of someone committed to your opponent.  Studies show a personally signed letter will be read more frequently, kept longer and generate more activity than letters with digital, scanned or printed signatures.  As good as digital, scanned or pre printed signatures on a letters may look, most people can easily tell they were not hand signed.  The written signature also inc

Online Advertising

Karen A.B. Jagoda

The two most common elements of an online campaign tend to be e-mail and a Web site with rich media and plenty of interactivity. The third and least developed leg of an online political campaign is online advertising. This article will answer questions about political online advertising strategies and explore how online advertising can target highly desirable audiences during parts of the day that are otherwise impossible to buy or prohibitively expensive.  These “day parts” are subsections of the broadcasting day, used to determine the cost of advertising on a radio or television pr

Tilting the Playing Field: Voter ID & Turnout

Jim Ross

It is one of the great political clichés, the day before an election an analyst says about a race, “it all depends on turn-out.”  That statement is true, but voter turnout is much like Mark Twain said about the weather, everyone complains about turnout but no one does anything about it.  For Gavin Newsom’s mayoral campaign we did something about turnout. 

In December of 2003 while managing Gavin Newsom’s mayoral race we identified the need to effect turn-out in his favor in order to win the election.  San Francisco’s mayoral elections are traditionally close and ver

Getting the Strong Urge to Run? Get Started Right After Election Day



As we approach yet another Election Day, all politically-minded eyes are focused on this year’s big races.  There are a small number of people, though, who have already begun to look beyond Election Day: next year’s candidates.  For them, while this year’s campaigns are important, the most important campaign, their own, is just beginning. 

Whether you’re just thinking about running for office next year, or you’ve already decided to throw your hat in the ring, you may be asking yourself, “When should I start my campaign?”  The best answer anyone can gi

Best Practices for your Database System

Benjamin A. Katz
Mark Rackers


While some politicos still cling doggedly to their well-loved clipboards and broken pencils, those items deserve a more appropriate interment in the Museum of Campaigns Past.  Today, you simply must use a database system.  It is the lifeblood of your campaign, the one place (ideally) where you will plan events, track fundraising, catalog volunteers, and manage your budget. 

There are two things you should keep in mind about database systems.  First, you need a good one.  Second, you need to use it right.  A good tool poorly used is no better than no tool at all.  Imagine using your
