Detailed Voting History
Because the same public voter data is used to support candidates at every level, the data contains very granular municipal districts and voting history, allowing you to target races at every level.
Early & Absentee Vote Data
Essential for cost-effective GOTV efforts, early vote data that must be acquired as votes are cast is available as part of data. This is a critical resource for organizations that want to run robust get-out-the-vote campaigns.
