MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama voters will have a much easier time following campaign donations in the 2014 elections for state offices.

The Alabama secretary of state's office plans to launch a searchable online database of campaign donations by the end of May. It will replace the old system of paper documents and scanned-in documents, and it will premier in time for the start of fundraising for the 2014 elections.

Reports say that the records can be searched by name for donors. The system was mandated by the Legislature as part of the laws it enacted in 2011 to make campaign fundraising more transparent. The secretary of state's office estimates the new system is costing $300,000 to $350,000.
