VIP Continues to Support Elections Through 2018

Note: This analysis was updated April. 12, 2018, to reflect changes to state elections.

The Voting Information Project (VIP) is significantly expanding its support of federal, state, and local elections in 2018. As it did in 2017 during key special and off-year elections, VIP will provide critical information, such as polling place locations and ballot information, to voters who will cast ballots in more than 100 elections, including statewide and federal primary and general races in at least 46 states and the District of Columbia. 

VIP is a partnership among The Pew Charitable Trusts, Google, and the states to ensure that voters have the official information they need to answer basic questions such as “Where is my polling place?” and “What’s on my ballot?” VIP data is available at no cost through a customizable widget and SMS tool, as well as the website Get to the Polls. Web and app developers can also use the Google Civic Information API to include VIP data in their applications.

All information below is subject to change.
