We have created a step-by-step guide to assist with building your Anedot Donation Page to meet the format requested by the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) to comply with N.J.A.C.

Contact ELEC directly to inquire about campaign compliance requirements. Anedot does NOT provide compliance advice or approval.

ELEC Requirements

The regulation states the following:

  1. To be eligible for match pursuant to N.J.A.C. 19:25-15.17, a contribution received by means of an electronic transfer of funds, including a credit card, shall be deposited directly into a matching fund account established pursuant to N.J.A.C. 19:25-15.14(b). For each contribution received by an electronic transfer of funds, including a credit card, the matching fund submission shall include a deposit slip or dated receipt from the bank or financial institution which specifically identifies the contributor and the amount of the contribution and a written statement which includes the signature of the contributor, the name of the contributor as it appears on the account used for the electronic transfer of funds or credit card account, the name of the owner of the account used for the electronic transfer of funds or credit card account, and the billing address of the account used for the electronic transfer of funds or credit card. An electronic signature will satisfy the signature requirement in this section when:

    1. A contributor or authorized representative provides the required information, as specified in this subsection;

Setting Up Gross Deposits

By default, Anedot accounts are set up on Net Deposit. To participate in this program, you are required to "collect and deposit the gross amount submitted by each

contributor, without deduction of a processing fee."

The Anedot team can help you switch over to Gross Deposits to comply. Please contact us at [email protected] if you need assistance!
