Denver Clerk and Recorder hires third-party company to roll out new campaign finance system

The Denver Gazette: The Denver Clerk and Recorder’s Office has partnered with MapLight, a civic technology firm, to build out a replacement for the city’s “outdated” campaign finance reporting application. 

MapLight is a nonprofit based in Berkeley, California, that “reveals the influence of money in politics, informs and empowers voters, and advances reforms that promote a more responsive democracy,” according to the company website. 

The application will help administer Denver’s campaign finance regulations, provide “in-depth” search functions for the public and implement the Fair Elections Fund, a public campaign finance program created with overwhelming voter support in 2018 to match municipal candidates’ contributions of $50 or less at a ratio of 900%.
