Federal Government Slow to Compile 2006 Election Returns

Published on July 31, 2007, by in General.

Two agencies of the federal government always publish compilations of the vote for candidates for Congress. Since 1920 the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives has been doing so, and since 1976 the Federal Election Commission has also done so. The Clerk’s publication is called “Statistics of the Congressional Election of (such-and-such a date)” and the FEC’s book is called “Federal Elections (year).”

Normally, both books have been published within 6 months of the election. It has now been over 8 months since the election, and neither agency has published its book. Thanks to Tom Jones for this news.
