NOTICE: This is an older version of Ballotpedia's API. For the latest documentation, see:


Ballotpedia is the Encyclopedia of American Politics. Our goal is to connect people to politics by providing accurate and objective information about politics at the local, state, and federal level.

Our writers are constantly updating with the latest political information. We've built a system to extract this data from our main website into a database which we present through this API.


At this time, Ballotpedia's API is requires an access key. Keys are only available to select partners. To inquire about API access and pricing, please contact Matt Latourelle.

Please note that the API is currently read-only. Effectively this means that the method for all requests is get.

This API is currently under development. Features may be added or change slightly from time to time. The documentation will be updated accordingly.
