Who Voted?

“I Voted,” the new data visualization website from Foursquare and JESS3, will track check-ins at polling locations across the US tomorrow– providing valuable demographic information and acting as a testing ground for how data from the Foursquare system can be used in the 2012 elections.

From the Atlantic:

“This is a big development in political campaigns, in which the two most important concerns have always been getting out the vote and building a community. Allowing users to declare #ivoted via Foursquare and Twitter is the digital version of sporting the classic emblem of civic participation — the “I Voted” sticker.”
