WHY WE INVESTED
There are a growing number of election administrators who seek to improve their practice through the application of scientific analysis. The MIT Election Data and Science Lab seeks to improve democracy by promoting the application of scientific principles to the understanding of election administration in order to make American elections more convenient and secure.
With the help of our grants, the Lab will facilitate the election data collection and share that data through web-based tools and datasets. By creating systems for disseminating findings to the public and academic field, the Lab aims to develop a network of scholars and actively engage the press, citizen groups, and public officials about the scientific issues related to the conduct of elections. This research will assist the work of administrators, stakeholders, and others in order to enhance the voting experience of Americans.
