Edison Research collects all Election Results for the National Election Pool, which consists of ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN
Loveland, Ohio – With Ohio Issue 1 and 2 on the ballot tomorrow, Edison Research has engaged Loveland Magazine to telephone them with local results as soon as the polls close. To provide their “projections” they do not wait until local boards of elections post results on the Internet. They need results as soon as they are posted on the door of local precincts.
Edison Research is the sole provider of election data, race projections, and analysis to ABC News, CBS News, CNN, and NBC News. In an effort to improve quality, streamline data collection, and expand election coverage in 2018, ABC News, CBS News, CNN, and NBC News ended their arrangement with the Associated Press for vote tabulation and now exclusively partner with Edison Research for these data. Edison Research projections are made in all 50 states for statewide races and ballot measures.
Tomorrow night when you hear projections about the results of Ohio’s abortion amendment or the legalization of marijuana, the data Loveland Magazine provided will go into the complex calculation of “projecting” winners and losers. If Steve Kornacki pulls out his “Big Board” Tuesday night and projects the outcome of the two big Ohio issues, he will be relying in part on data collected by Loveland Magazine.
Loveland Magazine will also publish local results tomorrow on the important Loveland School Board and City Council elections.
