The repository of election data is available since 1945. There is no license available on the website. An introductory text explains that data can be freely used by researchers and citizens but no reference is made to open data. Also on the Open Data Catalogue (http://dados.gov.br/dataset/resultado-das-eleicoes/resource/bfd28046-7236-4a4a-82ef-3e0fcd92771c) no license is specified. Data is not timely on the Open Data Catalogue but on the primary source (website of Tribunal Superior Eleitoral).

2015 - The result can be exported to CSV from the commission's website.


comment of reviewer

About Openly licensed, in Brazil there are no explicit licence for governamental products, is rare and there are no tradition about this kindo of notice in a document. The link illustrates the inferred licence of law-documents, and similar inference must be done for elections datasets.

The Romanian Permanent Electoral Authority set up a portal where the results of the elections can be retrieved in XLS format. Usually, the results are published immediately after their validation by the Constitutional Court. Only the results of the more recent elections (after 2004) are available in re-usable format. Although the data is not explicitly licensed on their website, the datasets with the most recent elections (2009+) are also available on the Government's Open Data Portal - http://data.gov.ro/organization/autoritatea-electorala-permanenta - thus the positive answer to the specific question.

The data can be downloaded for each scrutiny from separate pages. The Authority also set up a page where all data is available, including online viewers, at http://alegeri.roaep.ro/, but it is working intermittently.

The data is updated almost in real time as the election results are processed.

It is not available in bulk, but the information is in easily scrap-able htmls and sometimes available for download as CSV files.

The data was considered non-open as, although the Commission is working towards increasing the amount of machine-readable formats and the respect of interoperability, it does not clearly state what the reuse, modification and distribution conditions are (see here: http://results.cik.bg/pi2014/csv.html).

The Central Election Commission publishes election results (for both general and EP elections). Each election instance, however, has its own web page and there is no central starting point where you could find all results together.

I was not sure if the dataset qualifies as machine-readable -- the situation varies in every case with most results available as HTML tables located on multiple web pages:

The www.vote.je site is the official source of the election results and was set up by the States Greffe.

The main (horizontal) menu on the www.vote.je site also provides access to the 2011 and 2013 results (though they do not provide quite as much detail e.g. spoiled papers)

There have been no major elections in 2015 as the parliament has moved to a 4-year term of office for all its elected members and there have been no by-elections at the time of submission.

Information about the 2014 Municipal Elections (which were centrally administered) is available at http://results2014.cec.gov.ge/ with a nice interface and precinct level results as both HTML tables and scanned PDFs of the original documents. Results for past elections are displayed under the Archive section of the website (http://www.cesko.ge/en/arqivi-6), data for the historically important 2012 Parliamentary Elections is available at http://results2012.cec.gov.ge/.

Although precinct-level data is provided in HTML tables, API calls to the interactive portion of the website return Javascript / HTML snippets which are designed to be directly inserted into the website DOM, making them effectively not machine-readable without significant effort. This also means that the data is not available in bulk, because individual precinct results would need to be downloaded manually.

In addition, precinct level data is incomplete and not available upon request. Only district level data is. This makes it difficult to conduct many kinds of analyses on the data.

Finally, administrative boundaries change regularly and the CEC does not make geographic shape files available to the public that officially delineate the boundaries of precincts from one year to the next.

All government-generated data in Georgia is legally in the public domain, although no particular license is provided with the online data.

Disclaimer: Parliamentary Elections were held on Oct 26th, 2014 and the Presidential election is scheduled on November 23rd 2014 - This submission to the Open Data Index was made on November 20th, 2014

Preliminary results from the Oct 2014 election are available here: http://www.isie.tn/documents/arrete-resultats-preliminaires.pdf

Data on the 2011 elections is available from the Instance supérieure independante pour les élections (in Arabic). This data, not available in machine readable formats, was scrapped and used to build: http://tunisiaelectiondata.org/# (Mourakiboun, Development Seed, Democracy International). However, the links from Tunisia Election Data and from the 2013 Global Open Data Index to 2011 election data are now dead.

Reviewer: When surveyed after the parliamentary elections and after the first round of the presidential (on Nov 26), the ISIE website provided preliminary results from the presidential elections and additional information and data on the parliamentary elections. See: http://www.isie.tn/documents/%D9%82%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%B1%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AA%D8%B5%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%AD%20%D8%A8%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%86%D8%AA%D8%A7%D8%A6%D8%AC%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A3%D9%88%D9%84%D9%8A%D8%A9%20%D9%84%D9%84%D8%AF%D9%88%D8%B1%D8%A9%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A3%D9%88%D9%84%D9%89%20%D9%84%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%86%D8%AA%D8%AE%D8%A7%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%AA%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B1%D8%A6%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A9.pdf

I would thus consider information to be released on a timely basis -- even if the "data" is print-out, manually signed and then re-scanned PDF.

2013- 2014 - Elections Canada is the elections authority at a national level. Its terms and conditions prohibit commercial reproduction of materials on its website (http://www.elections.ca/content.aspx?section=ele&document=index&lang=e). However, data.gc.ca publishes many of the same materials under an open license. Elections are also held in the provinces and territories as well as municipalities. Each jurisdiction would need to be contacted to assess the degree of openess. Regarding the conflicting licences we have sent a question to the respective authorities but we have assessed that data is available under an open licence.

Canada does count and report results in poll station level, but it publish and display the results in an aggregated district level. Therefore, the data exists and is digital, it just not publicly available.

2014 entry: The data on elections is not open to the public under EML standard. If this data is open it would enable new applications and insights that have a positive impact on our democracy. At this moment, very little information is available about the elections: On the website of the Election Council the results appear only five weeks after the elections in its database. In this database, only the results on the municipal level is shown, not at the level of polling stations. Although the unofficial results of the local elections were announced one day after the elections (March 20, 2014), one is referred to the websites of local governments for the results. On March 28, 2014 when the last recounts were done, one is still referred to the websites of local governments. On election night, news is followed by calls that are made by news agencies to municipalities. These are not actual open data of the actual results. A misinterpretation of results or an error in the news chain could cause wrong information being spread.

You have to search on the website to find some data, for example the parliament election for 2014(http://www.ihec.iq/ar/index.php/news-archive/6075.html). The format of the data is PDF.

From the Election Commission of Malaysia official portal (link: http://www.spr.gov.my/index.php/component/content/article?layout=edit&id=74%20target=), the datasets provided were incomplete. There were only 2 elections results provided which is the results for the 13th (2013-current) and 12th (2008-2013) Parliament of Malaysia. In order to get complete information, the public have to make a request to the Election Commission of Malaysia. Given that the institution is in the Federal State territory, submitting for Freedom of Information request is impossible because there is no Freedom of Information Act for the Federal State Wilayah Persekutuan. Therefore, the public can refer to 3rd party who did published these datasets online http://everypolitician.org/malaysia/.

The National Committee for Elections is responsible for conducting the elections of the National Federation Council, the Emirati parliamentary body. The website of the National Committee has information about previous elections ( https://www.uaenec.ae/ar/about-us/about-fnc-elections ) that include information such as names of candidates and the numbers votes they each acquired. The data includes the number of candidates and the number of votes each person acquired with a state level breakdown. There is no polling station break down because there was one polling station in each state.

Reviewer's Comment:

The data on the website doesn't have the Number of Invalid/Spoiled votes, thus, I think I will mark the whole dataset as unavailable since it doesn't meet the requirements

The Ministry of Interior ( http://www.moi.gov.om/ ) has a website dedicated to Municipal Councils Elections ( http://election.gov.om/shura/index.php/ ) that provides details of the candidates and live voting results. Unfortunately, it appears that historic data about previous Parliamentary sessions have been removed from the website and the current version of the website focuses on the elections that about to start in the country. The current website provides the details of all the candidates as well as the names of every single registered voter.

The Ministry of Interior is responsible for this information and for the collection of this data. This website is run by them, elections.ma, though it in the results pages (example, http://www.elections.ma/elections/communales/resultats.aspx and http://www.elections.ma/elections/regionales/resultats.aspx) we could only find names for winners, MP's, breakdown of seats per political parties, and percentage of participation of voters. We, however, could not find number of registered voters per polling station, number for participation, invalid and spoiled votes. We were not able to access the Moroccan Open Data portal, data.gov.ma, during this reviewing process to check if such missing data is available there. We thus, will mark the existance of this dataset as unsure

Previous year's review below: The Ministry of Interior is responsible for this information and for the collection of this data. It has no website (yet ?). Also, the Ministry of Interior is not a producer of Data at the Open Data portal (www.data.gov.ma). The Ministry of Interior thus collects data but does not share it, neither on the data.gov. ma nor elsewhere.

No data exists online at all. The conditions according to which the data may be released are unknown. It is unknown how the data is handled. Thus, questions about pricing policy and timeliness have been marked 'Unsure' to reflect this reality.

The Ministry of Interior publishes the elections results. You can see the results for the most recent presidential elections here (http://www.interieur.gov.dz/Dynamics/frmItem.aspx?html=140&s=23). The results is only in totals, no results per district or polling stations.

For the parliamentary elections, no results were found when we checked here, http://www.interieur.gov.dz/Dynamics/frmCategories.aspx?htmls=13&s=23

The UK's Electoral Commission publishes an authoritative collection of electoral results (including general elections, local council elections and EU Parliament elections). The results are collected from local returning officers by a third party on behalf of the Electoral Commission. The Electoral Commission makes the bulk data available for download in CSV and Excel spreadsheet formats. In October 2013 the Electoral Commission updated the terms on its website to make it clear that the electoral data was re-usable under the Open Government Licence. Data is provided timely.

The data was last updated in May 2015 with results of the latest national elections.

The main URL from CNE does not have the most recent elections. Those can be found at the Ministry of Internal Affairs website, which unlike CNE does not provide bulk datasets.

There are many bulk datasets missing from the CNE site as well. The results are insufficiently granular, with most featuring only general results at the national level.

Last year's comment below:

The most recent elections in Libya were held in July 2012. At that time, results were made available shortly after voting ended. However, the website of the national authority for elections, the High National Election Commission, does not contain any information whatsoever about reports and statistics from these last elections.

We checked the Guardian Council's website (http://www.shora-gc.ir/Portal/Home/), it is who approves or disapproves parliamentary or presidential elections candidates. It has a section for elections on the website, but only containing election laws and another elections news section, mainly about the council's activities.

Currently, Electoral Commission announces the results after the Ministry of Interior confirmation. We checked the site for the Ministry of Interior, the page for the presidential elections results (http://result-p.moi.ir/Portal/Home/default.aspx) seems to be down. Wikipedia article about 2013 elections in Iran cited the Ministry of Interior as their source, but didn't specify a link. We couldn't find any web presence for the Electoral Commission.

This link from MOI should also provide the elections results data (http://www.moi.ir/portal/home/default.aspx?categoryid=c2cf29ae-2e8e-4319-a926-1e311d44c6d1), but links there are not working, and gave us errors when we tried to access the presidential or parliament elections results. Only one of the few links that worked for one past election, gave us data in the following format (http://www.moi.ir/portal/Home/Default.aspx?CategoryID=a49af0c2-962d-4896-9dab-994263db42f4 - http://www.moi.ir/portal/File/ShowFile.aspx?ID=7201aaf9-13af-48a0-902b-513b34e9134d), which doesn't seem to meet the standards
