Improving Data Visualization in Local Politics

The modern world is awash in data. From nationwide polls to the Fitbit on your wrist, information comes at us from every direction. The challenge is to make sense of it all. Data on a spreadsheet might offer the key to making a good decision, but if looking at it makes your eyes glaze over it might as well not exist. 

Our date visualization efforts aim to translate spreadsheet data into visual representations that are fun to look at and easy to interpret. We are currently focused on data about the track-records of local political candidates and about recent voter turn-out and trends.
