Tuesday, November 5 is the general election here in NY, and PediaCities wants to help you find your polling site.
You can see all NYC polling sites on the landing page and identify any polling station by simply hovering your mouse over it. To find your own polling place type your address into the search bar. A pop-up label will appear over your polling station telling you the site’s name and address. Try it now!
Clicking on any polling site on the map (or on the text within a selected polling station’s pop-up label) will take you to its unique page, where you can find detailed polling site information including entrance location, handicap access, and the type of ballot used at the site.
In keeping with our mission to add value to NYC’s open data by bringing it together in one intuitive, navigable space, we’ve embedded information from the CUNY Mapping Service’s Election Atlas 2013, a project exploring New York’s demographics and voting patterns on a local and citywide basis, right on the polling sites page. You’ll find demographic and voting data from the surrounding PUMA (short for Public Use Microdata Area, a census a statistical geographic area used by the Census Bureau to tabulate and disseminate data).
If you want to find candidate info on the go we also recommend checking out the Campaign Finance Board of New York’s NYCVotes.org from a mobile device.
Here’s to hoping we helped you get out your vote tomorrow!
