Patch has created an interactive database so you can see how much your neighbors are donating to the presidential campaign—and to which candidate they’re writing their checks. We’ve included communities across Ohio, so if you want to see what the campaign contributions in Mentor or Cleveland Heights look like, go right ahead.
The information in the database was downloaded from the Federal Election Commission’s website. The data is based on quarterly reports and shows contributions made from April 1, 2011 through August 31, 2012.
