Elections 2018

Here at the MIT Election Data & Science Lab, we're dedicated to collecting, analyzing, and sharing core data and findings related to elections and election administration in the United States. We have been preparing to gather and disseminate data from the 2018 midterms elections and will make a variety of datasets available that will provide context and clarity to the election results as they come in.

On this page, you'll find quick links to all our work related to the midterms, including county-level demographic datasets, historical election returns, and election night results from all states that make them available. You'll also find links to our analysis and discussion of the data, as well as our discussions on available sources for election administration.
