Encourage voter participation in the election process by using GIS. Shifting the focus to geography fosters trust and enables a sense of collaboration among constituents. Help voters quickly find and get to early voting centers and polling places, see polling place wait times, and explore who the local candidates are. GIS helps answer the complex questions that depend on a voter's location during an election.
