How and Why the Election Official Directory was Developed
US Vote was the original creator of this nationwide Election Official Directory, also referred to as the “EOD”. Our efforts began in 2004 when U.S. Vote Foundation was known as “Overseas Vote Foundation” (OVF) and we were focused chiefly on supporting overseas citizens and military voters to register and request their ballots to vote from abroad. It was essential, from the beginning, for US citizens living and voting from abroad to easily access their local election official contact information and to send them their voter registration and ballot request forms directly.
The EOD program blossomed and OVF (later US Vote, which expanded our voter outreach efforts into the US domestic realm) became known for its development, maintenance of local election official contact data. The EOD data is closely and continuously curated from official local and state election sources. The EOD database is of superior quality and is relied upon by a significant number of voter outreach and election research organizations across the country.
Why the Election Official Directory is a Nation-wide Resource
In conclusion, the US Vote Election Official Directory is the number one US resource for current contact data for election officials in the United States. It is a useful service for individual voters, researchers, campaigns, advocacy groups, media organizations, and election officials themselves, providing critical information on those responsible for ensuring fair and accurate elections in their communities.
