Check Out Our Dataset - Elections, Candidates, Politicians, Jurisdictions


(Sanjaya Punyasena) #1

We just opened up our dataset here: http://data.simpolfy.com/

This is the dataset we wish we had when we first started Simpolfy. Hopefully other civic tech coders will find it useful. Includes election, ballot, politician, candidate, legislation, voting records, jurisdictions, political offices, political bodies, and more to come!

You can read more about it here: https://blog.simpolfy.com/

And download the entire database here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByVanAkvMZhvUjRDWk1XX0x3Tmc/view?usp=sharing

Source code for the entire site: https://github.com/spunyasena/simpolfy-data-public

Would love any feedback! If you have any requests/suggestions let me know!
