Using Collector for Polling Center Accountability
Track: Elections, Redistricting, and Census
Authors: Samantha Luckhardt
During the 2006 Primary Election only 75% of Baltimore City’s polling centers opened on time. In response, the City developed a database application that tracked issues and streamlined communication between the polling center and the Board of Elections. The City used this system for 10 years and it became antiquated. EGIS decided to use ESRI’s Collector and ArcGIS Online to develop a visual and more efficient application that officials are using to track the opening status of polling centers.
