Post-election Contribution Rules vary by state
Elections don’t always turn out as expected. When the unexpected happens, our PAC clients sometimes want to get back on the winning side by making post-election contributions. Whether such contributions count against limits for the election that just occurred, or for the next contest two years or more hence, depends on a mix of governing law and the candidate’s financial status.
How do you approve your check requests?
Aristotle offers a better way to manage corporate and PAC contribution reviews. With Aristotle Political Contributions System (PCS), users can request, approve, track, budget and search disbursement requests for PACs and direct corporate political contributions. Built with a focus on Sarbanes-Oxley compliance standards, users in Aristotle PCS have defined roles to ensure separation of requestor, approver and administrator duties. PCS provides a secure and auditable process for the vetting, approving, and issuing of political contributions.
