Local election hex maps
In the lead up to the local elections on 3 May 2018, ODI Leeds have created a hex map using data from the Democracy club. The Democracy club uses crowd sourced data from thousands of volunteers and covers such details as candidates, polling locations, and when elections are held. Using data from the Democracy club allows the hex map to be used for any authority as the data is consistent in it’s format.
The map for Calderdale is available at Calderdale elections 2018 hex map.
The hex map provides a list of the candidates for each ward, the gender split of candidates for each ward, and the number of registered electors for each ward.
You can find out more about how the map was created at ODI Leeds blog: elections hex map.
