Good policy depends on good data. To help states achieve an election system with the highest standards of accuracy, cost-effectiveness, convenience, and security, The Pew Charitable Trusts' election initiatives team took a detailed look at each state's 2012 election data and uncovered the story behind the numbers.
We will be releasing more 2012 State Elections Snapshots over the coming months. Check back often — and subscribe to our Election Data Dispatches — for the latest.
