Colorado’s ACE program are winning plaudits from media as well as experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Minnesota ahead of the National Association of Secretaries of State’s Innovation, Dedication, Excellence and Achievement in Service awards which will be announced in July.
This could be the third win a row for the state which has developed a first-of-its-kind electronic warehouse of elections-related information. Colorado used InstantAtlas to develop an interactive website which uses InstantAtlas to display quantitative and qualitative election data, making it freely available to the public. As well as voting behaviour of its 3.5 million active and inactive registered voters, interactive maps charts and tables include information on voting method, compliance with legal requirements, vote credit based on registered party affiliations, election costs and two types of voter registration statistics.
“I am so proud of our office, which continues to lead the nation on so many fronts, from online business registrations to election awards,” Secretary of State Wayne Williams said. “We really are an innovative state agency.”
