Fun With Data: 2013 Poll Sites Mapped


Although the city’s Board of Elections and other websites provide fine poll locators, we decided to take a look at the spread of poll sites throughout the five boroughs for the 2013 elections.

After filing a Freedom of Information Law request with the BOE, they provided us with PDFs of the data, which they said was the only format they had available (a surprise, given their own website likely relies machine-readable formats).

Anyway, here are maps of poll sites in the five boroughs. (Visualizations by Cesar Bustamante.) See anything interesting? Send us an email to info(at)gothamgazette.com
