Overview

Election Outreach is a collection of maps and apps that can be used by the general public to obtain information about current elected officials, and locate voting centers or election day polling places.

When you deploy Election Outreach in your ArcGIS organization, you will get a series of ArcGIS Web AppBuilder applications used to educate the public, and an ArcGIS Pro project used to maintain an inventory of electoral districts, precincts, voting centers, and polling places.

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