What is BallotAPI?

BallotAPI exactly what it sounds like: a ballot API. More specifically, it is a public domain database and REST API of election and ballot information in the United States. The goal of this project is to allow developers to integrate up-to-date election and ballot information into their apps and websites.

This project is maintained by Open Austin, a Code for America brigade.

  • Prototype - server that follows the docs
  • Website - website design/logo/content
  • Demo - example app that uses the API
  • Testing - automated tests and sanity checks
  • Maintenance - apps for maintaining the dataset
