18F Rolls Out Federal Election Commission’s First API

GSAThe General Services Administration’s 18F organization has released the first application programming interface for the Federal Election Commission.

18F said Wednesday it designed the API to help users find candidates and committees.

18F developed the features based on its public API in order to provide access to non-government organizations via their own apps.

The API is part of FEC’s OpenFEC digital program.

18F will roll out the API in beta to gather public feedback in an effort to align the service with citizen demand.

18F is currently working to update features such as filings, report browsing, schedules, individual donations, granular spending data and subtotals for donations by state and zip code.
