To access the interactive maps, click the arrow logo     available from the  pages listed in the index below or select a state from the sidebar to the left.

Over 9,000 high detail  "zoomable" printer-ready, PDA compatible,  street-level focus precinct maps are also available for Arkansas, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio and South Carolina. Depending on the state, the maps show block-level estimates of unregistered persons of voting age or unregistered plus inactive voters.

In addition, community-wide Adobe maps  can be downloaded for about 1,600 localities in those eight states and a dozen or so other states where we have statewide registration or turnout data -- Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Depending on the state, these maps show precinct or neighborhood-level estimates of unregistered persons of voting age or unregistered plus inactive voters.

Just for fun, we've added Adobe maps showing Bush-Gore by precinct for the same set of localities in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. Similar Adobe maps are available for the 2002 Senate contests in North Carolina and Georgia and the 2002 Wisconsin Attorney General race.

Also, street-level census data Adobe maps are available for selected precincts in Oregon and Wisconsin counties, where we have been unable to obtain the registered voter lists.

These interactive and Adobe maps can help you marshal scarce resources for door-to-door voter registration and target areas for transporting voters to the polls.

Since the 2004 general election, we've updated interactive maps with precinct-level data for California, Minnesota, South Carolina, and Wisconsin (plus Maine and Michigan townships). We'll add more states where we can find statewide precinct-level geographic databases that match the 2004 election results, but in most cases this is not possible.

Note that several other state map applications include 2002 through early 2004 precinct/precinct proxy data Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, and  North Carolina.

June 2006

We can convert any thematic voting map on this site into Google Earth .kml/kmz  format. For an extreme statewide example, check out this Bush-Kerry statewide precinct map for California. The files is  large, so you will need a fast computer and a relatively new graphics card. Here is a much smaller one showing Washington DC voting precincts.

Most states close the books on registration about 30 days before Election Day on November 7. Less than 90 days remain for voter registration map production in this election year. The window of opportunity is even shorter if you want us to develop maps in time to measurably enhance voter registration canvassing productivity.

Of course, going out beyond the 90-day timeframe, we can continue to produce custom maps for GOTV efforts up to Election Day.

February 2006

Three websites provide relatively quick ways to display polling places, voters who need a ride, etc. on a publicly accessible web map (minus the census and political boundary geography). There is currently no charge for these services. Sample maps (with a template to interface with the Polling Place Demographics  map) can be found here.

November 2005

Georgia Photo ID Google map mashup (details here and on the ACLU website. Be sure to check out the rest of this special ACLU website on the Voting Rights Act.)

August 2005

Interactive maps for most states now have a  Google base map interface option. This could be of some utility for close-up zooms if you are looking for a feature such as  a college, park, or military base that is not displayed on the FairData map. You can also use the base map to get directions to any point identified by the balloon marker. Upon request, this option can be activated in any FairVote2020 interactive map.

December 2004

See Map 16 in 109th Congress Constituency Maps for a  Bush-Kerry by county interactive  map. For comparison purposes, a Bush-Gore map is also in the congressional map. This nationwide map is also available in the Polling Place Demographics  map application and the Ohio  and Minnesota maps. The Minnesota map also includes a Bush-Kerry precinct level map.

The Florida interactive map now includes a  map showing precinct-level results for the 2002 gubernatorial contest between Bush and McBride.

October 2004

Polling Place Demographics

Over 50,000 geocoded polling places in 440 counties, based on information compiled by volunteers working on a poll monitoring project with the Verified Voting Foundation.

June 2004

Bush-Gore thematic maps by precinct have been uploaded to the following  interactive maps, accessed under the "Compare Maps" drop-down menu at the end of the list:

Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Maine (towns), Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.

States in red were added  in July 2004.

Precinct-level thematic maps for key Senate contests from 2002 -- Cleland-Chambliss in Georgia and Dole-Bowles in North Carolina--  have been added to the interactive maps.

These maps show  head-to-head contests and exclude third party votes.

May  2004

We have produced street-level Adobe maps showing estimated unregistered voters by census block for Ohio (1,500 maps) and Arkansas (400 maps). Similar maps can be produced where we have electronic registration lists. 

April 2004

We have produced street-level Adobe maps showing estimated unregistered voters by census block for Florida (1,500 maps), Georgia (675 maps), North Carolina (750 maps) and South Carolina (1,000 maps). The maps focus on precincts where the  minority voting age population is 40% or higher. These printer-ready maps are suitable for door-to-door voter registration canvassing. Similar maps can be produced for anywhere in the country where we have block-level dataset estimates (as in Florida) or electronic voter registration files (as in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina). See  the Greensboro, NC  tutorial developed with our client  Democracy South and corresponding map-linked spreadsheet.

December  2003

We have updated the unregistered African-American map for North Carolina to pinpoint  the residences of approximately 50,000 African-Americans who were removed from the registered voter list because they have not voted since the 1998 general election. See North Carolina for additional details.

We have completed a preliminary geocode of  over 1.4 million registered Georgians as of 2003 (all races) who did not vote in the 2000 Presidential general election (some of whom were not registered at the time) See Georgia Map 18   (a statewide map with initial zoom to Thomasville, Ga.)
