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?

As submitter states, data are divided in numerous files, opened with different formats and organized under various data structures, although elections législatives 2012, Elections européennes 2014 and Election Presidentielle 2012 are available in TXT format. Format (submitted CSV and XLS) modified for TXT. As submitter notes, data is not easily discoverable. Data at the poll stations level takes multiple searches to be found on data.gouv.fr.
