Campaign Finance Board shows off candidate app
The city's campaign finance board is set to release a new app that puts election transparency in the palm of New Yorkers hands.
The app, which doesn't have a release date yet, includes a function that would allow candidates to collect small campaign donations via credit card and streamline their filing process.
Another feature provides voters with financial information about the candidates as well as contact information.
"We hope that these tools will help inform and motivate New Yorkers to not only head to the polls," Campaign Finance Board member Art Chang said in a statement.
