Ballot Counting Time-Series Chart

The following chart shows the progression of ballot counting for the Presidential race, beginning on November 3 and continuing over the following days. Some odd discrepencies appear in some states that deserve further investigation.You can compare multiple states by opening separate browser windows.

Legend
Black Estimated percent of ballots counted (eevp)
Green Total number of ballots counted
Blue Percentage of votes for Democrats
Red Percentage of votes for Republicans
Thanks to UnderstandingEdison.us for developing this interactive chart.

It's expected that we would see high volatility in the red and blue lines at the start of the counts, and a smoothing effect towards the end. This is due to the fact that earlier batches of ballots have a greater impact on the cumulative margin than the later batches.

Raw NYT Time-Series Data Files for {{ currentStateName }}

The following JSON data comes from the New York Times, and appears to be a transformed subset of the paid data stream from Edison Research, combined with a few entries from the Associated Press. The numbers for ballot batches are low-resolution in that they are only given in percentages and rounded to three decimal places (there's no exact ballot counts, except for the final result). If there are any instances where the data does not match the Secretary of State's final certified results, the SoS data should take priority.

Read Understanding the NYT Data for more information on common pitfalls.

The NYT does not provide CSV files of the data, but you can generate CSV files below if you find these easier to work with. These contain only a core subset of the JSON data.

We recommend the Firefox browser for exploring JSON data as it has a simple tree interface for drilling down into the data as well as keyword search. See example:

(This JSON file appears in a different structure and may include extra data. It appears to only be available for Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania, for some reason.)

* In the enhanced Presidential ballot CSV files, the first 9 columns are the exact values as supplied by the NYT feed (as in the raw CSV), but the subsequent columns are some additional calculated values which are useful in seeing the changes (sometimes called deltas) between batches. Unfortunately the NYT percentages are rounded to the nearest 0.1%, and when extrapolating this out to hundreds of thousands of ballots, it can sometimes introduce anomalies in the calculations such as seeing more negative ballot numbers than is to be expected (yes, there are some strange negative values which may require investigation, but possibly not as many as you're seeing in the CSV). We're working on ways to normalize these, but in the meantime, be aware.

More charts and tables may be coming soon, as our volunteer developers are able. Stay tuned, and follow us on Telegram to get notified.

Election Data Analyzer Tool, for Canvassing Voter Registrations

USEIP is currently developing a tool that takes voter registration data, combines it with maps, analyzes it for issues such as large numbers of people at a single address, and helps focus canvassing efforts on areas with the most irregularities.

Learn more about the tool via this Rumble video or from their Telegram Channel. It’s supported by USEIP.org.
