Tips for Researching Elections

  • State and local voting records (e.g. governor, state representative, councilman) are available from either state or county boards of election. These boards are also good sources of more granular federal election data, by ward or by precinct.
  • The Secretary of State is the top official for state elections. Search for state government Secretary of State websites for gubernatorial election information, policies, etc.
  • For election results, newspapers often report unofficial results on the day following an election.
