Authors: Jennifer Lana
Cobb County GA is a progressive, county in metro-Atlanta Georgia that has been experiencing strong growth and development. Early voting in Georgia began in 2003 and has continued the trend of increased voters every since. Cobb used ArcGIS Online to develop wait time reporting interfaces and Story Maps for voters to access information and encourage transparency of the entire election process. Individual polling location wait times are updated using the Collector App, several times daily.
