State releases campaign-finance app for Android users
LANSING –– The Michigan Secretary of State's office is announcing that a campaign-finance application is now available on the Android smartphone platform.
The app allows voters access to state campaign contribution information. Users can search for records by the names of state candidates and committees as well as by election period, party affiliation, committee type and the office being sought. The app displays direct and in-kind contributions received, expenditures and debt owed.
A version for iPads and iPhones was released in April in the Apple App Store and remains available for download.
The Michigan Campaign Finance Search application for Android is now available in the Google Play Store.
Secretary of State Ruth Johnson says she encourages "everyone with an interest in campaign finance to check out this application."
