New Tool Measures Election Administration in 50 States, D.C.

Feb 05, 2013

 The Elections Performance Index is a project that, for the first time ever, examines election administration performance across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. 

Users can click through the new online interactive to see where their state stands based on the indicators of their choice.

A state’s performance is based on 17 measurable indicators such as polling location wait times, availability of voting information tools online, the number of rejected voter registrations, the percentage of voters with registration or absentee ballot problems, how many military and overseas ballots were rejected, voter turnout, and the accuracy of voting technology.

View the full report, "Elections Peformance Index," on the Pew State and Consumer Initiatives site or explore the interactive map, "Measuring State Elections Performance."
