Description

NCEC Services is affiliated with the National Committee for an Effective Congress (http://www.ncec.org). We specialize in electoral analysis, strategy, targeting, and GIS services. We provide data and analysis widely used in progressive campaigns as a reliable measure of candidate support, persuadable voters, and demographic characteristics.

We are a small team with years of experience in redistricting and electoral analysis. For some staff members, this will be their third or fourth cycle of redistricting. And for others, it will be their first.

We are looking to bring a few more people on staff who we can train-up on internal best practices. Initially, most of the work will focus on data processing. But as the 2020 Census data gets released, our work will transition into a mix of data handling and analysis centered around redistricting.
