This data category requires results by constituency / district for all major national electoral contests. Election data informs about voting outcomes and voting process. What are electoral majorities and minorities? How many votes are registered, invalid, or spoilt? To enable highest transparency, the Index assesses polling station data. Data for electoral zones does not suffice. The Index consulted the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to develop this data category. For more information, see the NDI’s Open Elections Data Initiative. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

Rejected submission since not all required data is available and data at a polling station level is not available. The final results for the latest elections, either presidential (http://elecciones.gob.ar/articulo_princ.php?secc=2&sub_secc=57) and legislative elections (http://elecciones.gob.ar/articulo_princ.php?secc=2&sub_secc=55), are available in PDF files and do not include all the required data (all but spoiled ballots). Files could be easily scrapped, although further work would be needed for in depth analysis since it is highly aggregated. Provisional results are available in RAR files, with CSV inside, but CSV files do not asses the complete information, but mostly polling station codes and number of votes scrutinized. It’s worth noting that a set of definitive results (PASO elections) are available on PDF and hosted on Dropbox, and that historical results (2001-2011) are informed to be in PDF files but the website throws a ‘403 Forbidden’ result when attempting to open it. CSV files won’t be considered for this submission since they represent provisional data. Because of the final results not being available at this time, it’s publication was not considered timely. Submitter stated that the analyzed website was down when publishing this submission.
