About NC Votes

NC Votes turns voting data into useful products and public insights. The goal of the project is to use public data to increase knowledge about voting and elections in North Carolina.

Compiled from the NC State Board of Elections public data files, the data includes information about current and historical precinct maps, election results and voter demographics. The board has posted online demographic and election results data by precinct after 1998, and by county-level going back to 1993. All information on the site is public record, and is allowed and encouraged to be used by any publication with proper citation.
