The Voting Information Project (VIP) is significantly expanding its support of state and local elections in 2017. As it did in 2016 during the general election, VIP will provide critical information, such as polling place locations and ballot information, to voters who will cast ballots in more than 70 elections.

The elections include the statewide contests in Virginia and New Jersey and New York City’s mayoral election, as well as dozens of school board races and other local and municipal elections across the country.

VIP is a partnership among The Pew Charitable Trusts, Google, and the states to ensure that voters have the official information they need to answer basic questions like “Where is my polling place?” and “What’s on my ballot?” VIP data is available at no cost through a customizable widget and SMS tool, as well as the website Get to the Polls. Developers can also use the Google Civic Information API to include VIP data in their applications.
