THE VOTING INFORMATION PROJECT

Through the Voting Information Project (VIP), we work to ensure Americans can easily find accurate and official voting data where they look for it most.

In 2008, a Pew Charitable Trusts report found that millions of voters searched online for information about elections, though no standardized, reliable source existed for voters to obtain basic Election Day information.

VIP was created to address this need as a joint effort of state and local officials, the Pew Charitable Trusts, and Google to bring official voting information to voters via the internet. 

Democracy Works took ownership of VIP in 2018 after four years of leading data collection and quality assurance for the project.

Our work ensures that official voting locations and ballot information reach hundreds of millions of voters through the Google Civic Information API and a suite of freely-available tools.
