Anyone can access and use this information, which is searchable, so users can easily sort through the data. This report will be updated weekly to capture verified election ads that have one or more impression.
As with our U.S. and India election advertising Transparency Reports, the data from the EU election advertising Transparency Report and Ad Library will be available for anyone with an interest in transparency soon afterwards on Google Cloud’s BigQuery. Using BigQuery’s API, researchers, political watchdogs and private citizens can write code and run their own unique queries on this data set to develop charts, graphs, tables or other visualizations of election advertising on Google platforms.
Supporting elections around the world is hugely important to us. We’ll continue to work in partnership with the EU through its Code of Practice on Disinformation, including by publishing regular reports about our work to prevent abuse, as well as with governments, law enforcement, others in our industry and the NGO community to strengthen protections around elections, protect users, and help combat disinformation.
