What data is expected?

This data category requires results by constituency / district for all major national electoral contests. Election data informs about voting outcomes and voting process. What are electoral majorities and minorities? How many votes are registered, invalid, or spoilt? To enable highest transparency, the Index assesses polling station data. Data for electoral zones does not suffice. The Index consulted the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to develop this data category. For more information, see the NDI’s Open Elections Data Initiative. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

  • Results for major electoral contests
  • Number of registered votes
  • Number of invalid votes
  • Number of spoiled ballots
  • Data available at polling station level

How open is the data?

Finding the data requires an extensive effort. Searched for elections results on Google, arrived in a webpage from JGE with the results available as PDFs hosted in ISSUU, downloadable as PDFs files. After that, it required further exploration of the website, to the Dependencias section where we can access the 2016 election results in PDF files. They do have all the required and optional data by electoral zone. By accessing to a new page, which accounts as the portal for electoral data (http://transparencia.jce.gob.do/Repositorio/EntryId/5395) it is possible to download the data as a XLSX files, with data by polling station. Same with past elections (http://jce.gob.do/Dependencias/Elecciones/Elecciones-Anteriores). Submitter also had similar trouble finding the data. License seems to be closed. Paragraph reads: "All contents of the Portal de Transparencia de la Junta Central Electoral Web Site are: Derechos Reservados 2017 JCE and/or its suppliers. All rights reserved."
