About this Collection

Scope: The United States Elections Web Archive includes sites archived weekly during the election seasons since 2000, documenting sites associated with the Presidential, Congressional, and gubernatorial elections. The campaign sites archived for the U.S. Elections typically include social media channels as well, in order to provide a fuller representation of how candidates presented themselves via the Internet to the electorate.

In previous United States Election web archive collections the Library of Congress included web sites of political parties, government, advocacy groups, bloggers, and other individuals and groups expressing relevant views – these types of web sites are now collected and presented separately in the ongoing Public Policy Topics Web Archive.
