SPLUNK FOR GOOD

Splunking The Election

Splunk is passionate about recreating the way people act on information, and now we’re extending that passion to the 2020 US Presidential Election. We want to bring up-to-date election data from a variety of public sources to every citizen.

Splunk for Good Election Dashboards

Encouraging people to vote is important, and so is keeping people informed. As a result, Splunk and Splunk for Good are bringing you another set of public dashboards, much like the COVID-19 data public dashboards we brought to you back in March. These dashboards provide patterns and trends about the presidential race between President Donald Trump and Former Vice President Joe Biden.

We’re focusing on bringing transparency to polling and early voting data, and allowing you to understand this information wherever you are through our Splunk® Enterprise Dashboards app (beta) and suite of Splunk Connected Experiences products, so you can view this information on the go. 


With these beautiful, dynamic and functional dashboards, Splunk is committed to displaying and redistributing non-partisan information. We’ve hand selected open sources of data that will help inform people about election statistics. For example, some of the data we’re using comes from publicly available data courtesy of the U.S. Census, which is using Splunk to collect and analyze critical data and bring transparency to the election.
