Improving The Voter Experience
Reducing Polling Place Wait Times by Measuring Lines and Managing Polling Place Resources
Call to Election Administrators: Join The BPC/MIT Line Program
BPC and MIT believe that measuring lines at every hour at every polling place should be a universal practice of election officials. We are expanding our program in 2018 and we encourage election officials from large and small jurisdictions across the country to join our program.
If you are interested in participating, we ask that your county assign a poll worker at each polling place to count the number of people in line at every hour and record it on a paper sheet. We will input the data and provide you with individualized analysis of daily average line waits and arrival rates at each polling place. There is no cost to local election officials for this program.
If you are an election official and would like more information to join the program, please insert your information below.
