New Electronic Database for Election Donations


By Alabama News Network

Alabama voters will also have an easier time following campaign donations in the 2014 elections for state offices.

The Alabama secretary of state's office plans to launch an online database of campaign donations by the end of May, just in time for the start of fundraising for the 2014 elections.

It will replace the old system of paper documents, and records can be searched by donor name.

The system was mandated by the legislature as part of the laws it enacted in 2011 to make campaign fundraising more transparent.

The new system is estimated to cost $300,000 to $350,000.
