About this Collection
- Collection Period:
- August 1, 2000 to ongoing.
The United States Elections Web Archive includes campaign sites archived weekly during the election seasons since 2000, documenting sites associated with presidential, congressional, and gubernatorial elections. The collection includes official campaign sites from general elections, special elections, and off-year elections. The sites archived in this collection 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 Elections 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.
