Providing accurate election information to voters can be challenging for states due to regular changes and updates to ballot information, polling locations, and election laws. To overcome these obstacles, the Voting Information Project (VIP)—an initiative of Pew, in partnership with Google and the states, is working to make election information available where people look for it most—online. VIP offers voters, campaigns, candidates, election officials, and others a standardized, reliable source for official voting information.

VIP works with the states and the District of Columbia to collect and distribute current, accurate election information. The project provides states with technical assistance in standardizing and publishing their data, and the final product is official and up-to-date information on polling places, ballots, and candidates that voters can access online and through a variety of tools and applications.
