Hello folks,

I am building a sample project that uses the voterInfoQuery API to query for polling location data. So far we've been successful to get data from a few states like Virginia. However, it needs a full address. I was wondering, is it possible to query only with a zipcode? We are a lean team and cannot afford a zipcode to address data table.

Thanks in advance!

I don't see how it's possible, given that zip codes cross a lot of precincts.

Hi Vinicius

US voting information is tied to your specific street address and is therefore a requirement. 

Thanks

Hi Vinicius - I'm a Civic user working in election tech. It's possible for two folks in the same zip code to have a different Election Day polling place location. So the source of truth for polling places is your full residential address e.g. 123 Main Street, City, State, Zip. 

(Also, I believe in some states, you must go to your assigned polling place for your home address as well.)

Hope this helps - good luck,
Amy
