We’ve also included records for many communities across southeastern Michigan, so if you want to see who from Dearborn or Grosse Pointe contributed to campaigns, go right ahead. You can search by candidate, contributor, city, ZIP code and amount contributed.
It's important to note that while a vote for a candidate is secret, a donation to a campaign is public record and open to public scrutiny. Federal election law requires campaigns to regularly report donations and contributors. The information in the database was downloaded from the Federal Election Commission’s website. The data is based on quarterly reports and is current through July. The FEC data will be updated in mid-October. We'll update this database when new information is available.
