Hi Civics API Users,

We are noticing that a number of queries are going towards the election ID of 0. Please note that if you are attempting to query information for the 2020 US General Election, querying election ID 0 may return a small number of ELECTION_UNKNOWN errors. To fix this, you will need to add the election ID parameter with a value of "7000" to your HTTP request. Below is an example of what this will look like:

You can refer to our documentation for more details about querying the voterInfoQuery API here:

Thank you all for your continued support with the Civics Info API!
