In a database, a record is a collection of specific, uniform information related to, or clearly defining, a single item or entity. In Aristotle 360, there are four types of Records: Individuals, Organizations, Legislators, and Committees.

Types of Records

  • Individuals: This type contains information about specific people, such as contributors, staff members, volunteers, and constituents.
  • Organizations: This type typically contains information about all of the organized groups you work with except those that qualify as Committees (below). Examples of your Organizations may include your vendors, employers, businesses that contribute, and banks.
  • Legislators: This type contains information about elected officials at all levels, for example U.S. Senators and Representatives, Governors, members of State Legislatures, County Commissioners, and local elected officials. This record type is populated and updated by Aristotle resources.
  • Committees: This type typically includes those organized groups whose primary function is to influence, or participate in the political process. Examples of Committees include Political Action Committees, Political Party Committees, State Party Committees, Campaign Committees, and other types of political committees.
