Useful links: Workshop July 16

The League runs a nationwide online voters’ guide that provides (in addition to links to registration forms, status of registrations, and more) non-partisan ballot information tailored to the individual user. Users enter their street address and -- if the LWV has set it up -- they can see the candidates and issues that will be on their ballots down to the local level. If candidates have cooperated, they will also see biographies and answers to League-posed questions.

If you are concerned about the state of our democracy and want to do something to empower and educate voters, here’s your chance. We need to populate with information about Monmouth County and local-level races for the upcoming election cycle. Come learn what’s involved and, if you choose, sign up to do your part -- at a WORKSHOP, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Monday, July 16, at the Monmouth County Library Eastern Branch, 1001 Rt. 35, Shrewsbury, hosted by the League of Women Voters of the Township of Ocean and open to all -- you don't need to be a League member to participate.

Datausa: Data Visualized

Vast troves of data, pulled together by government, are open to the public, digitized and posted to the web. Demographics, traffic patterns, public health, family incomes, Vote! energy consumption, and a lot more is available. Available, but not necessarily easy to access or understand.

The M.I.T. Media Lab eases the challenge and adds value to the data with a project called Data USA, which it calls "the most comprehensive visualization of U.S. public data".
