Legacy JSON Data

The data contained in these downloads is in roughly the same format as that obtained via the legacy Open States v1 API. (Refer to those docs for specifics on file formats.)

These downloads are not intended as a replacement for using the API. behind the current data. This makes them useful for general research purposes or initializing a database that will then be kept up to date via regular calls. If you’d like more current data please use the API.

Latest Update: November 3, 2018

The latest legacy JSON files can be obtained from a URL in the format: https://data.openstates.org/legacy/json/ak.zip
