Information about the 2014 Municipal Elections (which were centrally administered) is available at http://results2014.cec.gov.ge/ with a nice interface and precinct level results as both HTML tables and scanned PDFs of the original documents. Results for past elections are displayed under the Archive section of the website (http://www.cesko.ge/en/arqivi-6), data for the historically important 2012 Parliamentary Elections is available at http://results2012.cec.gov.ge/.
In addition, precinct level data is incomplete and not available upon request. Only district level data is. This makes it difficult to conduct many kinds of analyses on the data.
Finally, administrative boundaries change regularly and the CEC does not make geographic shape files available to the public that officially delineate the boundaries of precincts from one year to the next.
All government-generated data in Georgia is legally in the public domain, although no particular license is provided with the online data.
The submission is correct.
