Client for parsing the Associated Press's elections API

Project description

Build status PyPI downloads Version License Support Python versions

Get database-ready election results from the Associated Press Election API v2.0.

Elex is designed to be fast, friendly, and largely agnostic to stack/language/database choice. Basic usage is as simple as:

elex results 2016-03-01 > results.csv

Disclaimer

Elex was developed by The New York Times and NPR and not in concert with the Associated Press. Though we plan on using Elex for the 2016 cycle, there is no guarantee that this software will work for you. If you’re thinking about using Elex, check out the license and contact the authors.
