The MIT Election Data and Science Lab (MEDSL) advances and disseminates scientific knowledge about the conduct of elections, primarily in the United States, but with attention to the rest of the world.

Supported by generous grants from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, The Joyce Foundation, and Democracy Fund, the Lab began operating on January 1, 2017. This is a temporary website.  We anticipate that the permanent site will be up and running early in 2018. Until then, feel free to explore updates to the progress we are making and plans for our lab.
