A Critical Component of Election Modernization: An Update on the Geo-Enabled Elections Project

Every voter in this country deserves a correct ballot and to vote in the right contests. We, the people, rightfully expect this when engaging in the democratic process. The mission of the Geo-Enabled Elections Project is to ensure the right ballot gets to the right voter. We facilitate the adoption of geographic information systems and related processes to ensure transparency, efficiency, and accuracy in election management - all in the name of voter confidence and increased citizen engagement. Now more than ever, GIS integration in elections is crucial, especially as states and counties begin drawing election boundaries as part of redistricting in an unprecedented short period of time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As geospatial professionals, we must advocate for this powerful technology and work with state and local election directors to enhance their processes using GIS. We must do this in the name of democracy - re-establishing confidence, one voter at a time. Join us for an on-demand session at the NSGIC Hybrid Annual Conference to learn more about what we have been up to this year.
