Trackers on Election 2018 campaign ads

via Gary Price at INFODocket…

"Of the 1,008 websites we collected (House and Senate candidates for
the 2018 midterm elections), we were left with 981 after removing
duplicates and invalid links. We found that trackers are present on
87% of all sites considered and that around 13% of all campaign pages
assessed were tracker free.

41% of pages assessed had 2 – 5 trackers on them; followed by 26% of
pages with 6 – 10 trackers; 13% of pages with 0 trackers; 11% of pages
with 1 tracker; and 8% of pages with 11 – 20 trackers. Finally, just
under 1% of pages had twenty or more trackers present."
