while looking through the donar name and amounts at the fec.gov website i noticed that none of my donations or listed on this site i looked at my state then my zip code and nowhere do i find that i give to Ron Paul the only evidence i have are my bank reciepts.
Just wondering if anyone else that give is not listed on the fec.gov website.

I noticed the same thing with my donations. I gave three times in Q4 all under $50.

They have to be above a certain amount within a quarter.

I gave 540 and mine didn't show up

I could not find my Q3 donations weeks after Q3 data was posted. Now, my Q3 totals are listed, but not Q4.

I think it just takes the FEC time to process all the information and get it available via their website.

I give more than $50 back in december and also donations as low as $28 show up on the list and donations from the same day I donated.I guess now I should do the math and see what dosen't add up.

The site only provides information thru the fourth quarter (Dec 31, 2007). Also, the campaign does not have to submit donations less than $200. I don't know if smaller donations that cumulatively add up to more than $200 show up or not. (ex. 3 $100 donations are all less than $200 but add up to $300 total). Mine are in this category, but some were 4th quarter 2007 and some were 1st quarter 2008..... they don't show any.

try there.

All they do is pull information from the FEC website. If you know what you're looking for, there's no point in going to some secondary source. If it's not on the FEC website, they won't have it either.

well,today I spent a little time doing the math from the stats on the fec website and it all adds up,as if I didn't give.The total amount from my district+state matches ONLY the names and amount listed on the list of donars.

None of my donations show up either. (3 in last qtr 07)

My name isn't even on my precinct list. But I received the voter cards in the mail so I know I'm registered.

If your individual donations are $200 or less, the campaign doesn't disclose them separately. I had a few large donations that show up, but the smaller ones do not.

Here are my donations:

6/7 $100

7/10 $100

9/19 $200

10/3 $100

10/30 $25

11/5 $100

11/11 $1575

11/24 $60

12/16 $40

They total $2300; but the only one that shows on the FEC site is the 9/19 contribution of $200. So, if your donations don't show up, you are not alone.

I donated 8 different times and each one showed up including my $18 store purchase.
