What data is expected?

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.

As the submitter noted, the data is up-to-date and it is possible to download data either per type of election and year but available only in a community level, not polling station level. Wasn’t able to find a direct link to law that entitles that official acts are not copyrighted, but submitter noted that it is possible to find this statement in Art 1317, form the Civil Code. I also found that this could be addressed too in the Art. 8 of the Belgian Copyright Act, which refers to 'official acts' as being exempt.
