Evaluating Elections by Zach Markovits Pew

Evaluating Elections with Zach Markovits

NCSL 2013 Legislative Summit: Aug. 13, 2013



Zach Markovits


Zach Markovits is a manager of election initiatives with Pew Charitable Trusts. Under his guidance, Pew has created the "Elections Performance Index," an online interactive tool that measures how well voting processes work in America.

By looking at 17 indicators, the EPI suggests stengths and weaknesses in each state. Markovits' expectation is that state lawmakers will use this tool to help guide policymaking for elections.

Indicators include the use of online voter registration, the numbers of absentee ballots requested and accepted, post-election audits, voting success for overseas voters and more.
