Download Country Data (January 31, 2015)

The data below are earlier versions of the data that are part of the Toolkit. The data below are organized by country and stored either in the common ESRI Shapefile format ("shapefiles") or in comma separated values (csv) spreadsheet format ("votes"). The set of shapefiles for each country contains seven files (.shp, .shx, .dbf,.prj, .cpg, .sbn, and .sbx) along with a .txt file documenting their creation. The "shapefiles" zipfiles for some countries also include an ArcMap project file (.mxd) that loads shapefile layers in correct viewing order. Please note that the most up to date versions of the data are available at the Toolkit website or by emailing election-forensics@umich.edu.
