The Government Accountability Board was created in 2007 by merging two independent agencies: the State Elections Board and the State Ethics Board.
This web site, launched in June 2010, brings together information about the Board in one convenient, easy-to-use place. The existing Elections Division and Ethics Division web sites will be maintained in some form for several months; however, they will not be updated. Old election returns and pre-2008 electronic campaign finance reports are still temporarily hosted on the Elections Division site.
The new site was built in-house by a team of G.A.B. staff members using Drupal, the same free, open source software used for The White House and many other government, nonprofit and commercial web sites.
This site is a work in progress. We would love to hear your feedback. Please let us know what you think.
