Project: Design an Infographic About the Election

We're looking for infographics about who is running, who is voting, who is paying for campaigns; anything you can think of about the election.


There is an election coming up, and we want to see what sort of data visualizations you can come up with.

the OBJECTIVE
Create an infographic about the 2010 midterm elections.


the ASSIGNMENT
For this contest, we're looking for infographics about who is running, who is voting, who is paying for campaigns; anything you can think of about the election.

the REQUIREMENTS
Please email us your submissions to projects[at]goodinc[dot]com with the subject "October 2010 Transparency Contest." It should be a JPG, exported at a high enough resolution that it can be printed at 300 dpi. Since we're a little pressed for time, we’ll take submissions now through October 24. As with our last contest, we'll be giving out three awards: best use and presentation of information, best aesthetics, and best overall infographic. The winning entries will be selected by GOOD and winners will be announced the week of October 24, featured on our homepage, and printed in the next issue of GOOD. We’ll send GOOD T-shirts and a free subscription (or gift subscription) to the winners.

RESEARCH and INSPIRATION


The TPM Poll Tracker is a great way to find the results of various polls.

OpenSecrets does a lot of work tracking who has given money to what campaigns.

Ballotpedia has great information on different ballot initiatives (we just did a piece about some of the best).

FiveThirtyEight does great things crunching poll numbers.

Anything else you can think of, post in the comments. No one gets credit for having information that no one else has, only for pulling out the most interesting parts.
