Voting Information Project: Partnering with Election Officials to Inform American Voters

The Voting Information Project offers cutting edge technology tools that enable election officials to provide voters with access to customized election information to help them navigate the voting process and cast an informed vote.

Paying bills, ordering flowers, finding movie show times and locating popular restaurants online requires little effort for individuals in today's digital society. But, the same convenience doesn't apply to voters seeking basic Election Day information. Despite the fact that approximately 120 million people went online in search of answers to their questions about the general election in 2008, no standardized, reliable source currently exists for voters to obtain basic Election Day information such as the location of their polling place, candidates and issues on the ballot, identification requirements and requests for or instructions about absentee ballots.

Through the Voting Information Project, the Pew Center on the States is partnering with election officials across the country to make official election information more widely available to all voters.

This brief explains how the Pew Center on the States, through the Voting Information Project, is working with election officials across the nation to provide cutting edge technology tools to make voting information accessible online to all Americans.
