Decision Desk HQ Announces Formation Of Decision Desk HQ News And Acquisition Of Elections-Daily.com
Undertakings Are Part Of Expansion
In Local Domestic News And International Election Coverage
November 1, 2021 — Decision Desk HQ, the leading provider of election results and related data in the United States, announced today the founding of Decision Desk HQ News and the acquisition of Elections-Daily.com, a site dedicated to breaking news and in-depth analysis of elections around the country and internationally.
“The formation of Decision Desk HQ News enables us to expand the breadth and depth of our election coverage beyond our category leading election night results. DDHQ News is a separate entity that in addition to acquiring properties such as Elections-Daily.com, will work with election and politics focused sites to increase their exposure and revenue through unique content and revenue sharing partnerships. This isn’t just about US politics and elections either. Our coverage of elections in the UK, Canada and Germany demonstrates our commitment to international elections. We fully expect that expansion to continue in 2022 and beyond with DDHQ News being an important part of that growth.”-Drew McCoy, President of Decision Desk HQ.
The acquisition of Elections-Daily.com is the first in DDHQ News’ portfolio.
“I’m really proud of the work we’ve been able to do since founding Elections-Daily.com in 2019 . We’ve had a great reception to our work on things such as our Election Shuffler, Maps Database, and Redistricting Radar, along with our podcasts and regular editorial. The time had come for us to be part of a larger organization with more resources to enable us to not just continue what we’ve been doing but to expand them. The most immediate fruits of our new situation are the redesign of our website that are launching today and an investment in our election tools that will be debuting soon. We’ll also have access to DDHQ’s election results on the site starting tomorrow as part of our New Jersey and Virginia coverage. All of that is possible because we’re now part of DDHQ News and it’s just the beginning with much more to come.”-Eric Cunningham, Editor-In-Chief of Elections-Daily.com.
“We’re thrilled that Elections-Daily.com is our initial acquisition for DDHQ News. Eric and his team do great work and have built an excellent reputation among people who follow election news closely. We look forward to working with them and seeing what they can do with the resources and organizational support we’re going to be able to bring to the table. It’s an exciting time for all of us and we expect to announce more acquisitions and partnerships in the weeks and months ahead”, said DDHQ’s McCoy.
