Whether you want to populate constituent records in your database or provide an elected official lookup tool on your website, use the Cicero API for rapid and highly accurate district matching and data population.
The Cicero API uses address-level matching which provides greatly improved accuracy over zip code matching.
The Cicero database features comprehensive, verified gathering of over a dozen social media identifiers for elected officials.
The Cicero team uses accurate research methods to assemble comprehensive data. This guarantees better quality data compared to services that use website scraping.
Geocoding is the assignment of latitude and longitude coordinate points to an address. Addresses are passed to the Cicero API, each one is geocoded, and then the coordinates and CASS-certified standardized address is passed back to the user.
Cicero matches districts based on full address data, leading to the most consistently accurate results. Many other services use only zip codes, which can cover multiple legislative districts, leading to imprecise results.
The Cicero API map service provides you with a configurable boundary map image for each district. District boundary maps help visualize the geographic area an elected official represents.
A credit is the currency of the Cicero API. One API call deducts one credit from your account. A complete list of API calls and the credits deducted can be found here. In general, the number of credits you’ll need will be the number of addresses you need to match.

As a REST API, you or a developer can integrate Cicero into just about any web platform. However, sometimes that's easier to accomplish with a little help.
Cicero integrates with the Salesforce Nonprofit Starter Pack, allowing you to verify household addresses, and match them to Congressional, State Upper, and State Lower Districts.
Cicero integrates with CiviCRM, an open source constituent relationship management system, automatically setting school and legislative information for your contacts. This plugin is not maintained by Azavea.
