“As a result of recent hacking attempts on the FEC website, the FEC has taken servers that may have been affected offline and replaced them with less powerful backup servers. As a consequence, users may experience slowness and intermittent availability," the FEC said.

According to Roll Call, the FEC's website has had various problems since August.
