The UF Election Lab

The Election Lab at the University of Florida is a collaboration of faculty and students who study voting and elections through analyses of survey and election data. Our mission is to provide timely and accurate statistics, software, reports, and other useful information, primarily regarding voting and elections in the United States.

Our goals are to better inform people about how elections work, how voting may be improved, and how the public can become more engaged and more confident in the electoral process.
