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 Illinois, so if you want to see what the campaign contributions in nearby towns are like, go right ahead.
In New Lenox contributions through the end of August for Obama outweigh those to Romney. Obama received a total of $7,795 in contributions, including one for $2,500 and another for $1,000. Romney received a total of $2,7030, including two for $1,000 and two for $500.
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 data will be updated in mid-October.
