This election cycle, Hartland residents are giving larger contributions to Democratic candidate President Barack Obama.
According to Federal Election Commission records, Hartland residents have donated more than $2,000 to the democratic presidential campaign. Romney's campain has recieved a check for $250 from one local supporter.
All this information and more is in an interactive database Patch created so you can see how much your Hartland neighbors have donated to the presidential campaign—and to which candidate they’re writing their checks. We’ve also included records for many communities across southeastern Michigan, so if you want to see who from Rochester or Brighton 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 lawrequires 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.
