The Center for Political Participation at Allegheny College promotes interest and involvement in democratic life. The Voter Turnout Archive is a pilot project to calculate voter turnout statistics at the municipality or township level for all Pennsylvania counties. We are funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.
The records were able to be collected because of the generosity and cooperation of the county election boards.
We gratefully acknowledge assistance on this project from the following County Boards of Elections: Beaver, Butler, Erie, Mercer, Lawrence, Somerset, Venango, and Washington. We thank Larry Sink of the U.S. Census Bureau and Daniel M. Shea, CPP Director, for helpful advice.
Melissa K. Comber, Ph.D., is the Voter Turnout Archive Project Director. Please contact her with questions or comments pertaining to the Voter Turnout Archive project firstname.lastname@example.org
