Overview

Election Management is a collection of maps and apps that can be used by elections staff to report wait times, manage voting center or polling place requests, monitor Election Day performance, and gauge voter sentiment.

When you deploy Election Management in your ArcGIS organization, you will get a series of ArcGIS solutions used to manage election day activities; and an ArcGIS Pro project that can be used to maintain an inventory of electoral districts, precincts, voting centers, and polling places.

Clerks, Election Commissions, or Secretaries of State can configure and share the entire collection of election management solutions; or configure and share an individual solution that meets their needs.
