Geography is the common denominator of where voters live, how residents engage in the voting process, and how officials manage elections. With elections enabled by a geographic information system (GIS), elections departments of all sizes can simplify their registration management, elections operations, voter outreach, and results reporting before their next election.
Election planning with GIS
Planning for today's elections requires that government adapts to changing technological advancements, voting preferences, and requirements. GIS helps government stay ahead of these factors. Shifting the focus to a location before, during, and after an election enhances the voter's experience with web-based maps and mobile apps helping voters participate in the electoral process.
Modern elections departments embrace GIS technology to
- Streamline election preparations.
- Support Election Day activities.
- Increase voter outreach and education.
- Deliver user-friendly election results applications.
