Election Initiatives

The Pew Center on the States’ Election Initiatives aim to foster an election system that achieves the highest standards of accuracy, convenience, efficiency and security by supporting research that examines the most pressing election problems and undertaking an array of projects to improve election administration. We partner with state and local election officials, the private sector and others to identify and implement efficient, cost-effective solutions – policies, practices and technologies – that address key challenges facing the electoral process.

Our work includes:
