AP to make select US election data available to financial institutions through Google Cloud 

The Associated Press today announced a new collaboration with Google Cloud, making select historical data from U.S. elections available in Google Cloud’s BigQuery, giving financial institutions the ability to gain granular insights from AP’s gold-standard election results. 

Through this collaboration, Google Cloud customers gain access to raw, machine-readable results from past presidential, congressional and gubernatorial elections. 

“In this pivotal election year, we are pleased to join Google Cloud’s Partner Advantage Program and leverage Google Cloud technology to expand the use of AP’s best-in-class elections data in new ways,” said Sara Trohanis, AP vice president and head of strategic partnerships.

With a history of accuracy in elections dating to 1848, the nonpartisan global news organization’s research, technology infrastructure and human expertise ensures it provides the nation and the world with accurate and authoritative results from elections in all 50 states. 

Through Google Cloud, portfolio managers, researchers, software developers and others will have the ability to quickly gain access to elections data in BigQuery, study past elections, and create models from raw results in elections for president, Congress and governor. 

“Google Cloud’s collaboration with The Associated Press is helping to accelerate the flow of information to financial institutions for faster, and more informed decision-making,” said Kelly Sitarski, director of data and content partnerships, Google Cloud. “This work expands access to critical data that our financial services customers can leverage to benchmark AP’s raw vote count to derive signals for trading opportunities.”

Later this year AP plans to make historical elections data available on the Google Cloud Marketplace for banks, hedge funds and proprietary trading customers to purchase.
