A Couple Of Useful Maps

If you still don’t know where to vote on Tuesday, the Google Voter Info interactive map may help. You enter your home address and it provides a map to your polling place.

I checked my local polling place and it provided the correct solution. I live in a small town, so I expected it to fail, but it got it right. YMMV, especially if your local officials don’t publish accurate information in the first place. GIGO, any solution is only as good as the data input.

Another application that is running on Google maps is Right Wing Violence 6mos – Mar 15 – Sep 15, 2010. This is a limited to a single six-month period, but it gives you a feel for what is going on around the country.

If you whip up a mob, you have to expect mob violence.
