Presidential donor information is provided by the nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics, which has been analyzing federal election data since 1983.
The data contains a number of instances where one individual is listed multiple times giving an identical amount to the same candidate on the same date. CRP has assured VPAP that it has made its best effort to identify and eliminate duplicates. If you see transactions that you believe are erroneous, please
The 2016 cycle is the first in which CRP has included small donors listed in Federal Election Commission data. The high volume of processing and reporting a high volume of small donations presents a challenge at every step of the way – people who are making online donations for the first time, third-party vendors who process the donations, campaign staffs that report the information to the Federal Election Commission and CRP staff which makes the data more readily available to the public.
