Alexa Isn’t Political, But She Can Make Campaign Donations

Candidates can sign up for voice-enabled fundraising

Starting Sept. 19, Amazon will allow the 20 or so main candidates in the 2020 presidential race to sign up for voice-enabled campaign donations. Then, at some point in October, Amazon customers will be able to say, “Alexa, donate to [candidate name]” to send their campaign up to $200.
