Promoting public access to election records.

Information for Government Election Officials

Voter and Election data that appear on the Who Voted website are provided by the Elections Departments in states and counties around the United States. We only make Voter Data available over the Internet where permitted by law. [see Privacy Policy]

We rely on the cooperation of state and county elections officials to make this public information freely and easily available to citizens. Many offices charge hundreds or thousands of dollars for voting history data, which the website's (administrators) unfortunately cannot afford.

If you can provide voter or election data for use on the Who Voted website, please contact us. Details are at the bottom of this page.

What voter data are used?

Here are the fields that we will harvest from the uploaded files and make available to the public:

  • Voter Registration ID
  • Voter Name
  • County
  • State
  • Zip Code
  • Political Party
  • Election History

Other information is discarded.

Uploading new voter data

Direct data uploads to the Who Voted website are currently disabled to the general public. Until the following concerns are addressed, only a Who Voted site administrator may upload the data.

  • We haven't studied the feasibility that executable source code can be embedded in an uploaded file, presenting a security risk for the Who Voted Website.
  • We don't yet have a sufficient mechanism to ensure that the data uploaded is legitimate, unless we have a Who Voted site administrator do it.
