real time Election Day foursquare check-ins visualized by JESS3

As of 5:30 PM EST, there have been 28,959 check-ins at 16,233 polling locations with 59% of the check-ins coming from men and 41% coming from women. Check out the map we designed and are powering with foursquare’s API data, which was geocoded with help from Voting Information Project (Pew / Google / Engage). More on the project here from our blog “I Voted” and our case study here.

A pretty amazing integration of social media, data visualization and boots-on-the-ground civic action.
