MIDDLETON, Wis. , June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ballotpedia, the nation's premiere resource for unbiased information on politics and policy, today announced the launch of its Election Administration Legislation Tracker, a best-in-class resource to help the public, media and researchers quickly and easily track voter-related legislation.

Ballotpedia cuts through the noise to give people what they really want, a simple, accurate, unbiased and free platform.

Keeping track of the latest election administration developments in all 50 states can be a daunting task. Ballotpedia's tracker sets a new standard for ease of use and flexibility, with no email address, license or fees required to sign up.

"Whether you have five minutes for research or want to go deep on election legislation in your state, there's nothing as comprehensive as our Election Legislation Tracker," said Ballotpedia president and CEO Leslie Graves. "Election law and administration has come front-and-center in recent years, often surrounded by partisan talking points and spin," said Graves. "Our tracker cuts through the noise to give people what they really want – a simple, powerful, accurate, unbiased and free platform from an oranization they trust."



"The Election Administration Legislation Tracker makes it easy to narrow your search to look only at bills introduced in states with Republican trifectas, states with Democratic trifectas, and states with divided government," said Geoff Pallay, Ballotpedia Editor in Chief. "You can also search by the sponsor's partisan affiliation to see the number of election-related bills introduced by Republicans and Democrats—and how those bills may or may not differ from one another."
