Welcome to Election Data Dispatches.
The Elections team at the Pew Center on the States conducts research daily, digging through elections data and seeking information that helps us understand how elections work and how to make them work better.
Our findings are often critical to understanding what data exist, what they say about elections in America and how states and localities use data to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their election systems.
Election Data Dispatches is our round-up of the best stories, data, research and analysis that the world of election administration has to offer. It is election administration by the numbers, served up regularly for you to use and share.
Note to our readers: We are posting information to highlight innovative uses of data and research on election administration in order to prompt discussions in the field. Although we may link to external research data and other materials, we do not independently verify external research, endorse the reports or affirm the opinions of the authors.
