This app retrieves and displays public data on money in federal elections and makes the results of certain searches available to the user in CSV format via email. The federal elections for which this app can retrieve financial information include presidential and congressional. The source of the data for this app is the openFEC API project of the Federal Election Commission (with which this app is *not* affiliated).
A user may search for candidates, election committees or donors to election committees. Search results are displayed in the app, and the results of several types of searches can be emailed to the user in CSV format, along with the criteria used to perform the search
-A user may search for a candidate by name, candidate ID, state, office sought, political party or election cycle.
-A user may search for a committee by committee name, committee ID, associated candidate IDs ( if any), party, election cycle, designation (e.g., principal campaign committee of a candidate), associated organization type (e.g., labor organization) or committee type (e.g., so-called "Super PACs")
-A user may search for a donor by name, state, minimum amount of donation or committee ID
Please note that the data this app retrieves is only as accurate and as up to date as the data being made available by the openFEC project at the time of a given search.
