Election Science Teaching Resources

Over the years, there has been discussion about starting a database of resources and teaching aids for people who teach election science classes. We have begun to develop this database, which can be accessed at the link below. If you have questions about the resources offered, or have your own resources to contribute, please reach out to us.

Data Analytics User Group and Listserv

As the number of people providing data analysis to election agencies grows, so does the value of creating a professional community of election administration data analysts. We are working to jump-start a user group and related listserv intended for data analysts who work for federal, state, and local election agencies.  If you are interested in learning more or joining the group, please get in touch.
