Reviewer comments

The US run federal elections in all 50 states, how ever, data is aggregated in state level, and is not in poll station level. We suspect that the data exist in poll level, but we do not know how it is provided for each state. Currently, the US government does not aggregated elections results in poll station level for federal elections.
