It's unclear what you mean by "voter registration data". If it's demographic statistical data, the Census Bureau has reports from 2012 and earlier, and there are more reports at the Election Assistance Commission. These reports cover the whole US. if, instead, you are looking for actual voter lists (names, addresses), then it's unlikely to ever be ...

The US Census Bureau has an API for most of its datasets, which will allow you to retrieve state-based data in a structured form. You just have to request an API key. They provide examples for each of the datasets - a small and basic dataset like the Population Estimates might be a good place to start. This example shows you what you would get if you ...

Per Project Open Data, the individual metadata fields correspond to the specific "data asset" (or dataset) which you are describing.

This data is actually very challenging to get, as there is no federal regulation requiring the reporting or mandating the collection of state and local sales tax rates. A company that does business nationwide has only a few choices: have a team that combs through legislation, looking for tax changes; or hire a service that does this. This data is also ...

For velocity, you can also choose by gender, ethnicity, and other attributes. The system is a little awkward to use, but it ...
