U.S. Election Assistance Commission Releases Election Data Interactive

Online Tool Helps Users Pull Election Data for Specific State and Local Jurisdictions, Compare with Others

News Release from U.S. Election Assistance Commission, December 15, 2017

Silver Spring, Md. – The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) recently released the EAVS Data Interactive, a new data visualization tool that allows users to pull data most relevant to them from the 2016 Election Administration and Voting Survey (EAVS), the most comprehensive nationwide data on election administration in the United States.

For the first time, election officials, academics, activists and other stakeholders in the election process can examine specific data at the state and local level, as well as compare such jurisdictions side-by-side. In tandem with the Data Interactive, the EAC has also released EAVS election data fact sheets for all 50 states. Fact sheets for Alaska, California, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming are now available. These are the latest in a series of resources launched by the EAC to present the EAVS data in new and dynamic ways.

“The mission of the EAVS has always been to provide data that can be used to improve the way America votes,” said EAC Director of Research Sean Greene. “The EAVS Data Interactive’s features mirror feedback we received from election community about how the survey could be made more meaningful and actionable. By allowing stakeholders to pull the information most relevant to them and comparing these results with other jurisdictions, this new tool gives officials and others the tools they need to make informed decisions about election administration and policy.”

Since 2004, the EAC has captured and analyzed data from thousands of jurisdictions across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and presented the results of this survey in the biennial EAVS report. The data captured within this survey gives a detailed look inside the election process and information that can be used to improve future elections and voter experience. Over the last 12 years, the surveys have also demonstrated the impact of policy changes over time and shifting election trends, including more Americans voting before Election Day and a larger number of jurisdictions using technologies such as e-poll books.

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) was established by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA). It is an independent, bipartisan commission charged with ensuring secure, accurate and accessible elections by developing guidance to meet HAVA requirements, adopting voluntary voting system guidelines, and serving as a national clearinghouse of information on election administration. EAC also accredits testing laboratories and certifies voting systems, as well as administers the use of HAVA funds. For more information, visit
