50+ State & Local Civic Datasets

Civic data is in high demand these days espcially election data and finding that information nationally or locally can be problematic for constiuents looking for public data.In my case, I was looking for city council represntatives for a project, NYC offers a decent varierty datasets and API’s but I wondered what about the rest of the country?

So below you will find a collection of public datasets from the east to the west coasts and as much as I could find in between.
